Tuna Tataki with Broccolini and Shiitake

Tuna Tataki with Broccolini and Shiitake

A dish of simple flavors to pair with a single varietal of great aromatic elegance.

Ingredients (Serves 2)

  • 2 fresh tuna fillets (around 125-150 gr each)
  • Black and white sesame seeds to taste
  • For the marinade:
  • 6 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp grated fresh ginger
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 garlic clove, grated
  • Zest and juice from 1 lime
  • Ground pepper to taste

  • To accompany:

  • Broccolini, grilled

  • Fresh shiitake mushrooms, grilled
  • Lime juice
  • Soy sauce


Start with the marinade, combining all of the ingredients. Place the tuna in the marinade and refrigerate for around 1h. Afterwards, remove the tuna from the marinade and coat both sides with sesame seeds, forming a crust. Preheat a skillet and brown the tuna, around 1 minute on each side (more or less, depending on the thickness). Remove the tuna and grill the broccolini and shiitake mushrooms for a few minutes. Slice the tuna and serve with the broccolini, shiitake, lime juice and soy sauce.
