PREPARATION
1.
Preheat oven to 400 F.
2.
Lightly coat a rimmed baking sheet with olive oil.
3.
Soak 12 (6-inch) wooden skewers in water so they won't burn while the tuna bakes.
4.
In a shallow dish, combine the sesame seeds, salt, ground ginger, and pepper.
5.
In a medium bowl, toss the tuna with the sesame oil to coat. Press the oiled cubes into the sesame mixture.
6.
Put three cubes on each skewer.
7.
Place the skewers on the prepared baking sheet and place the sheet into the prepared oven.
8.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, turning once halfway through.
NOTES, TIPS, TRICKS, HINTS, ETC:
The cooking time given is for very rare tuna. If you desire more cooked tuna, remove from oven at 10 minutes and cover skewers with aluminum foil so the sesame seeds do not burn. Bake for an additional 5 minutes.
