This tuna has a beautiful, silky smooth texture, thanks to a quick brine and low temperature cook in the BioloMix Sous vide Cooker. It’s then coated in a mixture of sesame and poppy seeds and served with a ginger-teriyaki dipping sauce. You could also sear it before serving, if you prefer

Ingredients for 2

  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup salt
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 (5- to 6-ounce) tuna fillets
