  1. Pour the teriyaki sauce into a shallow dish or bowl, and place tuna steaks in the sauce to marinate. Cover, and allow to marinate for about 45 minutes at room temperature. The steaks will cook more evenly if they are not cold.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Place tuna steaks in the hot oil, and pour in the teriyaki sauce. Squeeze juice from the lemon over the steaks, and sprinkle with sesame seeds. When the bottom is light brown, flip the steaks, and cook until browned on the other side. The center will still be slightly red. Season with sea salt and pepper.
  3. Place the tuna steaks onto serving plates, and garnish with grated carrots. Serve the pan drippings as a dipping sauce.


  • Note
  • The nutrition data for this recipe includes information for the full amount of the marinade ingredients. Depending on marinating time, ingredients, cooking method, etc., the actual amount of the marinade consumed will vary.

Didn't add extra salt and it was still really salty. Kind of bland. Not trying this one again.

I took a break from cooking this weekend & my hubby made this for me while I soaked in the bath w/ a glass of wine. He omitted the sea salt since teriyaki tends to be salty & he took the suggest...

Excellent and very easy to prepare. Buy a high quality teriyaki sauce, as that is what will make or break this recipe.

I was out of lemons so I substituted orange juice. Delicious!

This was so easy and SO good! I even used frozen (instead of fresh) tuna steaks that were also smaller than what were called for and this STILL turned out great. I didn't measure the olive oil...

This was very good. I made extra sauce and drizzled over steamed vegetables. I served with Seasoned Couscous recipe from this site. We will make again.
