    On a plate, mix the kosher salt, pepper and sesame seeds. Rub the steaks with a small coating of olive oil, and then coat the top and bottom of the tuna steaks with the dry rub.

  • 2

    Heat your grill to a high temperature. Sear the top and bottom of the ahi for no more than 2 min. per side. The insides should be completely raw with just about a 1/4 inch of seared meat on the top and bottom.

    While the tuna rests, mix all the ingredients for the dipping sauce together.
