  • Rub the sesame seed oil onto the tuna; then coat with black and white sesame seeds. Refrigerate it on a covered plate for 15 minutes.
  • In a large, heavy-bottomed sauté pan set to medium-high, heat coconut oil for about 60-90 seconds––just before scorching.
  • Transfer the tuna from the refrigerator into the pan, and sear it on each side for 45-60 seconds.
  • Remove the seared tuna from the pan, and refrigerate it on a covered plate again until you are ready to serve.
  • Add beer to deglaze the pan. Cook until it is reduced by ½, and add it to the sauce.
  • Reduce your Tincture to MBO over low heat in a small, non-stick pan until thick and syrupy in consistency. Add soy, and honey and set it aside.
  • Placed all the ingredients into your MagicalButter machine, and secure the head.
  • Press the Temperature button, and select 160°F/71°C; then press the 2 Hours/Butter button.
  • Pour the sauce into serving dish.
  • Serve, and enjoy your Tao Sesame Crusted Ahi Tuna with Wasabi Soy Citrus Sauce!
