Grilled Sesame Tuna with New-Potato Salad

Grilled Sesame Tuna with New-Potato Salad


  • 1/2 cup rice vinegar, divided
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 4 4 ounces tuna steaks (about 1-inch thick)
  • 6 small red potatoes, quartered
  • 1 cup string beans, ends trimmed
  • 1/4 cup red onion, minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  1. Preheat grill, grill pan, or broiler.
  2. In a shallow dish, add 1/4 cup of rice vinegar to the sesame oil and hoisin sauce. Add tuna steaks and turn to coat. Grill or broil for 5-7 minutes per side.
  3. Meanwhile, cook potatoes for 7 minutes in a large pot of rapidly boiling water. Add string beans and cook for 1-2 more minutes, until potatoes are fork-tender and string beans are crispy-tender. While still warm, toss with the remaining 1/4 cup of vinegar, red onion, and parsley. Add salt and pepper.
  4. To serve, place 1 tuna steak on each plate next to 3/4 cup of warm new-potato salad.
