Health and fertility benefits of "Everything" Tuna

Sesame seeds help with progesterone balance. Lignans found in in sesame seeds help to prevent excess estrogen production. Poppy seeds are packed with calcium, magnesium, B vitamins, and zinc. Tuna is great for a high protein diet as it has 33 grams of protein within its housing, with no pesky carbohydrates to worry about. In addition to this, tuna contains B vitamins and vitamin D, both of which are vital to fighting back against PCOS.


3/4 c. white sesame seeds
3/4 c. black sesame seeds
1 c. poppy seeds
3/4 c. dried minced onions
3/4 c. dried minced garlic
1 tbsp. coarse sea salt
4 piece pieces tuna (see Tips & Techniques below)
Coarse salt to season
1 large egg white
Canola oil for deep frying
soy sauce
wasabi paste
Steamed rice


Combine white and black sesame seeds, poppy seeds, onions, garlic, and salt in a jar and mix well. Store mix in a glass jar out of direct light.
Season tuna with salt.
Beat egg white in a shallow bowl until frothy. Pour about 1 cup crust mixture onto a plate.
Dip each piece of tuna into egg white and let excess drip off, then coat fish on all sides with crust mixture, patting it to make sure it adheres. Put tuna on a rack set over a plate or baking sheet and refrigerate while you heat oil.
Pour about 3 inches oil into a large, deep saucepan and heat it to 365 degrees F. Fry tuna 1 piece at a time (if you do more, oil temperature will drop too far and too quickly) until dried onions brown, about 1 minute to 1 minute and 15 seconds. Drain fish on a rack.
Cut each portion into slices about 1/3-inch thick, and serve with soy sauce, wasabi paste, and steamed rice.
