Sesame tuna with sweet and sour onion and white melon sauce

Did we miss you? I hope you… The holidays we have a moment away but, slowly, we are returning all to normal and we are also starting to cook again. The dish that we present today represents, in the most general sense, a classic Sicilian combination, tuna with sweet and sour. Enlarging this concept, I decided to prepare some morsels of tuna breaded with sesame and poppy to accompany with a bittersweet onion and a melon sauce that, if sweet of nature, is contrasted with the strong flavor of spices and chives. Try to believe!
