    ~Leslie~'s Note:

    This Japanese-inspired tuna should be grilled very rare for the best flavour. The glaze keeps for two weeks refrigerated, but if it becomes too thick, thin down with a little water before using. Serve with rice and a cucumber salad. To crack peppercorns, place in a plastic bag and bash with rolling pin or back of a pot. Prep time includes marinating time. From Food and Drink.

      I found a really good price on Tuna steaks, $5.99 a pound! So I was looking for a new recipe to try. This was the most flavorful recipe I have found. The wasibi just added the right amount of kick. Thanks Leslie for sharing, I went out and bought more Tuna while it was on special so I could make it again!
