    In the meantime Mix the black and white sesame seeds together. Roll the edges of the tuna steaks in the seeds. Place a cast iron skillet over high heat. Once hot add the oil and let sit until a drop of water sizzles in the pan. Add the tuna steaks and sear on both sides turning and cooking until desired doneness. If you like your tuna cooked through watch closely turning often so they don't burn. May have to turn the heat down. Drizzle with the sauce to serve.
