Ginger Marinated Tuna With Wasabi Butter

Recipe by PaulaG

If you are expecting the sinus-clearing heat of the wasabi you will be disappointed. The orange mellows out the flavor and leaves a sweet heat. This recipe is from Cuisine at Home.

This is a fantastic recipe. I marinated both salmon and tuna and the marinade and wasabi butter worked perfectly on both. My DH overcooked the tuna a bit, and the wasabi butter was the saving grace! Definitely keeping this on my list of summer recipes!
