Frozen Tuna for Sashimi is not only delicious when you make Sashimi or Tartar, but it’s also good for a luxurious steak simply pan-fried. Since it is designed for Sashimi, you don’t have to worry whether it’s cooked properly or not. You can just cook it as you like from slightly searing to well-cooked. I prefer cooking it medium with the pink colour inside. Today, I added maple syrup and white wine sauce with it.
This recipe is very easy and the actual cooking time is short. You only need to be careful about the details of the presentation so that your dish will look gorgeous.

How to make tuna steak with maple syrup and wine sauce
1. Heat a tablespoon of sesame oil in a frying pan, cook the sliced garlic on a low heat until they get coloured, and take them out.
2. Place the tuna in the frying pan, put the lid on, cook both sides on a low-medium heat until they are cooked as well as you like.
3. Place the tuna on the plates and quickly pour the sauce in a frying pan to get it warm. Heat it for a few seconds, turn off the heat.
4. Put the needle-sliced spring onions on the tuna, sprinkle fried garlic slices, and white sesame seeds. Serve with the sauce.
Maple syrup can be replaced with sugar or Mirin as substitutes. If you use Mirin, white wine may not be necessary.
