Sesame Seared Tuna Steak

I have been hit with the regular or not so regular fall allergies really bad, and was down for the past 2 days. Face, head and body pain. Woke up today feeling like a champ and went for a 5 mile run. Got home feeling so good and extremely healthy that was craving fish, good fish that is, Tuna Steak!
We don't eat fresh tuna very often, only because good quality tuna comes with an expensive price tag, and if you are gonna have a nice tuna steak , it has to be quickly seared and served rare! At least that's how i like it!

2 Ahi / Yellow Fin Tuna Steaks, same fish 2 different names (1 1/2 inch thickness)
4 tablespoons white sesame seeds
1-2 tablespoon coarsely ground black pepper
1 teaspoon pink himalayan salt (you can use regular)
2 tablespoons sesame oil or canola oil
1 lemon, quartered

In a small bowl, mix together sesame seeds, salt and pepper.
Press mixture all over tuna steaks.
Heat oil in a frying pan until very hot. Cook tuna steaks for 1 minute, turning once, and cooking for another minute on other side, for rare. For medium rare cook 1 minute first side, and 2 minutes other side.
Slice into thick slices and serve warm with fresh lemons.
