Sous vide tuna

We've combined traditional Japanese flavors with a modern twist - our trusty machine Neovide will sous vide and sear the tuna to perfection, creating a dish that's both delicious and visually stunning. This cuisine is perfect for a light lunch or an elegant appetizer at your next dinner party. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!


Mode: NeoVide

Cooking temp: 51℃ / 123.8℉

Cooking time: 25 mins

Difficulty: Moderate



For the tuna:
300 g tuna steak (2.5 cm thick) 
2 tbsp black sesame seeds
2 tbsp white sesame seeds
Extra virgin olive oil 
Salt to taste
Black pepper to taste

For the sauce:
2 tbsp old-style yellow mustard
1 tbsp Peanut butter
1 tsp Honey



For the sauce:
1.    In a small mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients together and set aside. 

For the tuna:
1.    Season the tuna steak with salt and pepper on both sides.
2.    In a shallow plate, mix the white and black sesame seeds together.
3.    Press the tuna steak firmly into the sesame seeds on both sides, making sure they adhere to the fish.
4.    Place the tuna steak into the Neovide cooker and insert the probe thermometer into the center of the steak. Set the Neovide cooker to 51ºC and press the start button. It will take about 25 minutes for the steak to reach the internal temperature. 
5.    When the tuna is ready, remove it from the cooker and cool down in the fridge for 10 minutes. 
6.    Switch the Neovide cooker to mild sear function at 210ºC and sear the tuna steak on both sides. It must be done very quickly, so it does not overcook. 

Carefully place the sliced tuna tataki on a tray or plate and add a little sauce to each slice.

Other options can substitute the tuna in this recipe, for example, swordfish or mahi mahi will match perfectly with the flavors of this recipe.
