Flash Sauteed Tuna with Sweet and Sour Sauce

Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to do only what you wanted to do?! Yes it would be…Today if I could have, I would have stayed home. I would have looked at recipes and played in my kitchen… I find this so much fun… Well instead I went to work:-(

Consequently my day went by very quickly, too quickly in fact to allow me to think of something fun to cook. So today, I am sorry to disappoint you my dear readers, but today was a quick meal that was not very thought of. I nontheless enjoyed it very much.. While my family was having the Etouffade de Pomme de Terre, I was having Tuna. I love Tuna….

Sashimi tuna is on top of my list so today I prepared my tuna very rare with a bit of a sauce.

For the sauce you will need: 1/4 cup of light brown sugar, 1/4 cup of ketchup, 1/4 cup of chicken broth, 2 garlic cloves, pressed. 2 Tbsp of light soy sauce, 1 tsp of corstarch, 2 tbs of honey, 1 tsp of toasted sesame oil, 2 Tbsp of fresh ginger grated, 1/4 tsp of crushed red pepper flakes ( to add spice if you want), and black and white sesame seeds for adding colors:-)

Combine all the ingredients, whisk and bring to boil. Lower the temperature and cook over low temperature until the sauce thickens. Set aside.

For the tuna, 1 Tsp of butter, 1 tuna steak per person.

Melt the butter in a frying pan and when it is sizzling, cook the tuna steak for 1 minutes on each side so that it is just brown on either side but red on the inside. I like my tuna rare, so you may want to cook it a little longer if you want it more cook.

To serve slice each tuna in small 1/2 inch strips and drizzle the sauce over it.
