Tuna tataki with soy roasted potatoes and snow peas

Tuna tataki is basically just quick seared tuna. It is warm on the outside and cool in the center, somewhere between a cooked and a raw dish. In any case John did a great job cooking it after marinating it and covering the outside with sesame seeds. It was delicious.

For my part I looked around on the internet to find a compatible potato dish since we had used up our cooked rice and I had some little new potatoes that needing using. The potatoes are coated with soy, a neutral oil, sesame oil, and garlic and then roasted on a sheet pan. They did not have much of a pronounced soy flavor but they were good. The recipe says to cook them for 45 minutes which is way too long for little potatoes. I cooked them at 425F for 15 minutes and then turned the tray around and cooked them for another 10 minutes and they were done. Here’s a link to the recipe in case you would like to try them.


For the snow peas, first I de-stringed them and then sautéed the pods with some sesame seeds in a little butter and soy sauce. They only take a few minutes to cook.

Another quick and easy dinner to make the next time you feel like splurging on some tuna. BTW, I bought this tuna at Costco and it was too much for us to eat all at once. First we made poké a few weeks ago and froze the rest. This is the portion we froze and it turned out fine.
