Seared sesame crusted yellowfin tuna with miso glazed spinach and onions

Seared sesame crusted yellowfin tuna with miso glazed spinach and onions

This was my first attempt at this, and it was quite tasty (a little on the sweeter side because of the orange juice in the miso glaze/sauce)! Here's an attempt at recreating the recipe:

1 6-8 oz. piece yellowfin tuna
1/4 cup sesame seeds (I used black ones because it's what I had)
1/4 cup light red miso
1/2 cup mirin
1 Tbs. soy sauce
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 1/2 tsp. toasted sesame oil
juice from 1/2 an orange
1/2 of a large sweet onion
1 1/2 Tbs. of olive oil
1 bag of pre-washed baby spinach

Whisk together the mirin, soy sauce, miso, orange juice, garlic, and sesame oil. Put tuna in shallow dish and pour half of the miso mixture over it. Cover. Let marinate for an hour or so.

Carmelize the onions in the olive oil in a large pan while tuna marinates. Once carmelized, bring heat to medium, and pour what is left of the miso mixture in. Stir to deglaze the bottom of the pan. Let simmer for a couple of minutes. Fold spinach into miso sauce and onions, allow spinach to wilt and lower temperature to low while cooking the tuna.

Heat a dry grill pan over high heat (can be done while miso sauce is simmering). Spread sesame seeds out on a plate. Take tuna out of marinade and coat each side of fish with sesame seeds. Spray some non-stick cooking spray on the grill pan once it is up to temperature, and then lay tuna in pan. Do NOT move fish. Cook for between 1-3 minutes (depending on thickness, I cooked mine for about 2), then flip over and cook for another 1-3 minutes.

Tuna Wrapped in Fig Leaves, on the Grill

Tuna Wrapped in Fig Leaves, on the Grill

Grilled Tuna Wrapped in Fig Leaves

Fresh Fig Leaves - 3 medium ones worked for one serving. I picked them off a tree on my street but I think you can get them in specialty supermarkets.
1 Cut of Tuna for each serving
a few pats of butter
2 sprigs rosemary
Salt & Pepper to taste.
String (you don't eat the string)

Wash leaves, add tuna on top of largest leaf (fresh or frozen tuna is ok, frozen takes longer and ends up being a bit drier). Add pats of butter, salt, pepper, and rosemary on top. Wrap remaining leaves and hold in place with cooking string. Try to make sure it's wrapped enough that not a lot of juice will leak out when it is flipped over.

Put on a low temperature grill (or off to the side where it's not as hot). Cover the grill and let it cook for 30-45 min (more if frozen), flipping over a few times. The leaves should get soft and shrink to the form a bit more. In the end they'll be slightly crisped, but never hot enough that the string burns off. After you feel like it's just about cooked through, put it on the hotter area of the grill so the leaves get to smolder a bit.

Remove from the grill, let cool for a minute, unwrap and serve (don't eat the leaves or the string). The meat is very tender and a little smokey/dry but retains a good amount of the leafy & rosemary flavors.
