Ingredients for the sauce

  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger, finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper from the mill


  • 500 g filet mignon (about 2 steaks of 2” thick), removed from the fridge 45 minutes before
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • Salt and pepper from the mill



  • In a bowl, add the ingredients for the sauce then season with salt and pepper. Whisk to emulsify and set aside.
  • Place the steaks on a plate, baste with about 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil then rub to coat. Season generously with salt and pepper on both sides.
  • In a large skillet heated over high heat, add 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil and place with tenderloins. Cook 3 to 4 minutes per side, making sure you have a very rare doneness in the centre. Place the meat on a plate and let stand for 10 minutes.
  • Slice thinly and place the slices on a nice presentation plate. Whisk the sauce before drizzling some over the meat, then garnish with some sesame seeds and green onions! Serve with the rest of the sauce for dipping.
