Grilled Wasabi and Sesame Encrusted Tuna Steaks (Gluten-Free)

Summertime is around the corner, and that means it's time to fire up the grill and start cooking outside.

Recently, I was visiting a good old friend. For dinner one night, he grilled us a couple of tuna steaks encrusted with wasabi and toasted black and white sesame seeds. It was easily one of the most delicious things I've had in a long time.

  • 2 sashimi grade tuna steaks, about 8 ounces each
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt or gluten-free soy sauce (tamari)
  • 2 teaspoons wasabi paste (I use S&B in a tube)
  • ⅓ cup black sesame seeds, toasted
  • ⅓ cup white sesame seeds, toasted

Directions:
Coat tuna lightly with salt OR gluten-free soy sauce (tamari). Let rest for 30 minutes.

Rub wasabi over entire tuna steak. Use more wasabi as needed, or desired.

Lightly toast sesame seeds in a pan.

Pour toasted sesame seeds onto a paper plate or into a bowl.

Roll tuna steaks in sesame seeds until completely coated.

Heat grill to 500 degrees F. Place on grill just long enough to sear, then flip and briefly sear second side. Remove from grill.

Tuna steaks should be rare! If anyone asks for theirs to be well-done, threaten to send them to bed without supper!

Serve with corn on the cob, and grilled asparagus (See below)

Note: If you don't have a grill, then coat a frying pan with sesame oil and get it very hot. Sear each side of the tuna briefly, so it is still rare and red in the center.

Grilled Asparagus

Ingredients:

  • 1 dozen asparagus spears, washed
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 clove fresh garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 wedge fresh lemon

Directions:
Place asparagus and other ingredients in a plastic bag. Close tightly and shake until asparagus is well-coated. Grill briefly and remove when done. Serve along side the tuna steaks.

Yes but...

I didn't read that far. Yikes... A hefty dose of perspective in that one. For anyone reading this is the post:

Hi! I'm new to the Celiac world. I have been gluten free for around seven months, but still seem to get glutened on a regular basis. I have been sick since January '16 and think that is when it triggered, but I didn't realize until October what it was. By that time I was pregnant with my little boy who is due in June. I also have an almost 4 year old daughter. I am really torn and wondering if I need to really be tested? I have very strong suspicions that I am a true celiac because my aunt has been diagnosed. Part of me says it doesn't matter, just live gluten free and assume you are, but the other part says I need to get tested so I know if my kids are at risk. So far my daughter is fine. She was grain free until after her first birthday, I plan on doing the same with my son. But I also don't want them to suffer the way I have. What would you do? The reason I don't want to get tested is I don't want to start eating it again and feel terrible while I have little kids, last year was so hard and I just want to get strong again. I also plan to bf for a few years and don't necessarily think it's a good idea to eat gluten while bf right? Thank you!

Welcome too! Sorry to hear you're suffering now. If you can nail the diet you should improve. You should also think about vitamin supplements. There's a good chance that you're suffering from one or more deficiencies as a result of the affects of celiac on your intestine's capacity to draw nutrients from your food. A good multi vitamin is a must, just make sure its gluten free and see if your doctor can refer you to a dietician as Lochella's has.

Oh I had heard his name and read some stuff about him but hadn't come across this video! Thanks!!
