¼ cup toasted sesame seeds

Season tuna generously with salt, pepper and half the sesame seeds.
Heat oil in a heavy pan, until just smoking. Sear tuna quickly, about 1 - 2 minutes on each side, or to desired doneness - we recommend it very, very rare. Set aside and chill.
With a sharp knife, cut the tuna into 1/4" thick slices. Toss greens, cucumber and orange with vinaigrette and mound in center of plate. Arrange tuna slices in a fan pattern around greens.
Drizzle additional vinaigrette over tuna and garnish with reserved toasted sesame seeds.
