Sesame-Encrusted Seared Ahi

My favorite fish is ahi.  I love it raw; I love it seared; I love it in sushi rolls.  This is an amazingly flavorful and simple way of preparing ahi. 

Sesame-Encrusted Seared Ahi:

1/2 cup white sesame seeds
1/2 cup black sesame seeds
1 tablespoon wasabi powder
1 tablespoon sesame oil
Kosher salt
2 pieces tuna loin (about 8 oz each), cut in half
*serves 2 hungry eaters, or 4 light eaters

Combine sesame seeds and wasabi powder in a bowl and lightly salt and pepper the mixture.
Heat large pan on medim high and drizzle with sesame oil.
Salt tuna lightly and coat in the seed mixture
Reduce heat to medium and sear tuna on all sides until lightly browned (about 2 minutes)

(Day 4- 7 upper body/TKB)
