2 x 15g pkts sesame seeds
4 (about 140g each) tuna steaks
2 teaspoons olive oil
250ml (1 cup) sweet & sour sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 ripe tomatoes, halved, cut into thick wedges
65g (1 cup) bean sprouts
1 x 100g pkt Asian baby greens
Step 1Place the sesame seeds on a large plate. Press tuna steaks in the sesame seeds to evenly coat. Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook the tuna for 2-3 minutes each side for medium-rare or until cooked to your liking and sesame seeds turn brown.
Step 2Meanwhile, combine the sweet & sour sauce and soy sauce in a jug. Place the tomatoes, bean sprouts and Asian baby greens in a medium bowl. Drizzle with sweet & sour dressing and toss to combine. Serve tuna steaks with sweet & sour salad.

Leftovers: Use bean sprouts in salads or stir-fries.
Wine suggestion: Tuna and chardonnay go hand in hand. Jamiesons Run Chardonnay, $15, or De Bortoli Windy Peak Chardonnay, $14, will go down a treat.
