Albacore Sashimi with Tahini Sauce

We see sesame seed crusted tuna quite often in restaurants, as tuna and sesame are a complementary combination.

My tahini sauce is made with a ground sesame seed paste, lemon juice and garlic and is a perfect sauce for raw tuna. I serve it here with a dot of wasabi, crust the albacore with toasted sesame seeds, and offer tamari (soy sauce) on the side for balance.

  1. The restaurant where I get the albacore + sesame seed combination makes the crust with some wasabi too: it is really good. Your dish is quite inviting.

  2. The tahini sauce looks great. Is there more than the three ingredients you described? It looks so rich and creamy!

    I really like your vast collection of plates which adds so much “flavor” to your beautiful pictures…and I just noticed that you added Jimmy’s lyrics to “I Wish Lunch Could Last Forever” to your “sidebar”. And you know what I say to that – “Amen…and waiter bring us one more bottle of wine.”

    Keep up the good work on your beautiful blog.

  3. Father Adam – believe it or not, the other ingredient is WATER.

    I went back and forth deciding to keep the Jimmy Buffett lyrics on my blog…I WISH LUNCH COULD LAST FOREVER, I guess it should stay?? I thought those who didn’t know Jimmy wouldn’t appreciate it.

    Well then – Waiter, bring us one more bottle of wine!
