Directions

Preheat the grill or grill pan over high heat. Whisk together the miso, oil, agave, water, and rice wine vinegar. Season to taste with salt. Rub the tuna steaks all over with the mixture and place on the grill. Evenly sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the sesame seeds on thefish. Grill on the first side for 3 minutes, flip, and sprinkle the cooked sides with the remaining sesame seeds. Grill for an additional 3 minutes and then remove to a plate. I like the tuna to be just cooked through, but feel free to grill for less time if you prefer it medium or even rare.

To serve, grill or toast the buns. Lay a few lettuce leaves on the bottom half of each bun. Cut the tuna into 1/2-inch slices across the grain and evenly distribute on the lettuce. Drizzle each sandwich with a tablespoon of the vinaigrette, being sure to get plenty of sliced shallots in each spoonful, and sprinkle with the cilantro leaves. Close each sandwich with the top halves of the buns and serve with lots of napkins.

Whisk the vinegar, agave, and soy sauce together. While whisking,
drizzle in the vegetable oil. Add the hot pepper sesame oil to taste
to stir it well before serving.

    This dish was great. The tuna cooked rare which is how to eat fresh tuna. and the touches of the onions and baby lettuces were nice, But I would have made a light cucumber aioli with fresh dill and maybe a touch of fresh chopped cilantro..the bun was a tad dry..and for a cocktail or soft drink, I would make a caribbean fruity rum cocktail filled with crushed ice, or an iced green tea with mango and mint. Dont forget the umbrella"
