Grilled Tuna Steaks with Sesame, Scallions, and Dipping Sauce

3 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce
3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
Scant 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Tuna Steaks and Garnishes
2 tuna steaks (good quality such as Ahi or Yellow Fin-not albacore) about 1-inch thick and 5 to 6 ounces each
Canola oil for grill pan or skillet
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
Kosher salt
2 green onions including 1 inch of green stems, thinly sliced on the diagonal

1.For the sauce, combine all ingredients in a medium glass or nonreactive mixing bowl and set aside.

2. Pat the steaks dry with paper towels, and press each side of both steaks with sesame seeds.

3. Oil a stove top grill pan and set it over medium high heat until quite hot. (You can also use a large, heavy skillet; coat the bottom with canola oil, and heat until oil is quite hot.) Add tuna, and cook only 2 to 3 minutes per side for steaks that are rare in the center with a reddish pink line going through the middle of each steak . When done sprinkle them with salt.

4. To serve drizzle steaks with 1 tablespoon of sauce and sprinkle with green onions. Divide remaining sauce among 2 small ramekins to use for dipping. Serves 2
