The tuna steaks take very little time to cook, so prepare the coleslaw first. Stir or shake Jimmy’s Coleslaw Dressing with soy sauce, horseradish, sesame oil and dry ginger. Add mixture to pre-shredded coleslaw, peppers and pea pods and set aside. Heat skillet on high and add olive oil. Pour sesame seeds on to plate and coat each tuna steak on both sides with seeds. When skillet is hot enough to sear steaks, place each steak in the skillet and sear on each side for approx. 1 min. ( Note: you may prefer your tuna seared more or less. We recommend tuna rare. )While searing steaks, put coleslaw mixture on plates and have ready for seared tuna. When tuna is done to your liking, place on top of coleslaw mixture. Serve immediately.
