Seared Ahi with Honey Wasabi Glaze and Green Onion-Ginger Rice

Ahi Tun:
1 ahi steak, about 5 ounces
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
canola oil
Lightly oil ahi, then press sesame seeds into all sides of the fish. Heat canola oil in a small nonstick pan (enough to cover the bottom) over very high heat. When pan is very hot, sear ahi on all sides, no more than 20 seconds per side. (Beware of popping sesame seeds.) Remove from heat and slice against the grain.
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon wasabi paste
splash of rice vinegar
Stir all ingredients together. Set aside.
1 cup cooked jasmine rice
1/4 cup sliced green onions
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
1/2 – 1 teaspoon rice vinegar (to taste)
Combine all ingredients together just before serving.
To assemble: Plate rice and a few slices of ahi, then drizzle ahi with glaze.
