Gluten-Free Sesame Crusted Tuna with Asian Noodles

Main, Seafood | August 28, 2017 | By

So, I got the inspiration for this dish while watching “The F Word” on my treadmill (it’s a really fun cooking show)!  Gordon Ramsay makes a version of this yummy Sesame Crusted Tuna dish that made my mouth water! (Seriously, I was drooling a little!) I really wanted to share this recipe with you because it’s super simple, but full of fabulous flavor. Don’t be intimidated about searing a beautiful piece of tuna steak. It cooks so quickly and perfectly that it’s hard to mess up. The preferred doneness is very pink in the middle, but if you’re skittish about it being slightly seared, just sear it a bit more on each side. And the good news is that it’s gluten-free, made with rice noodles and gluten-free soy sauce for all of you gluten-free foodies. The presentation of this dish is everything, so please snap a picture of this dish when you make it and post it on our Facebook page. Are you drooling yet?

Gluten-Free Sesame Crusted Tuna with Noodles
 
Author:
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • ½ cup white sesame seeds
  • ½ cup black sesame seeds
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil, divided
  • 4 (8-ounce) sushi-grade tuna steaks
  • Salt & pepper
  • For the noodles:
  • ¼ cup gluten-free soy sauce
  • ¼ cup rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoons yuzu juice, or juice from 1 lime
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 8 oz. vermicelli rice noodles
  • ½ red bell pepper, seeded and julienned
  • ½ yellow bell pepper, seeded and julienned
  • ¼ cup cilantro leaves, chopped
  • ¼ cup mint leaves, chopped
  • 3 scallions, thinly chopped on the bias
  • Store-bought wakame (seaweed salad) for garnish
  • Black sesame seeds for garnish
Instructions
  1. Prepare the tuna: Spread the white and black sesame seeds on the bottom of a shallow dish. Pat the tuna steaks with paper towels to dry. Brush each tuna steak with 1 tablespoon canola oil on both sides and sprinkle with salt and pepper on both sides. Dredge each piece in the sesame seeds to thoroughly coat.
  2. Heat a heavy skillet over high heat with remaining canola oil until oil starts to wave. Cook the tuna steaks on both sides for approximately 1 minute until golden brown. Remove from the pan and let rest on a cutting board. When at room temperature, slice the tuna on the bias into about ½ thick slices.
  3. For the noodles: In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, rice vinegar, ginger, sesame oil, yuzu juice, and red pepper flakes. Set aside.
  4. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the rice noodles and cook approximately 4-5 minutes until al-dente. Rinse the noodles under cold water in a strainer. Place the noodles in a large mixing bowl and add the sauce, bell peppers, cilantro, mint, and scallions. Mix together well.
  5. To plate: Place a nice portion of the noodles mixture on the bottom of a shallow bowl or plate. Top with slices of tuna, sprinkle black sesame seeds and a dollop of wakame on top.
