This was very good, although I would use probably half of the pepper suggested. I do enjoy spicy food, but this was a little too peppery for my and my husband's taste buds. I agree, the sauce is excellent on other things... I served the tuna with a mixed baby green lettuce side, and sauteed snow peas, and they both got some of the sauce on them and it was delicious! I also served broiled, parmesean,covered thick sliced tomato with it. My husband asked me to make it again sometime, and I agree, it is worth doing again, low cal, tasty, and easy. Try it!!!

My first successful tuna steaks! Every other time they were overcooked and flavor-lacking. Served them on a bed of mesclun and had to substitute a few rings of real onions and a leek instead of green onions. I threw in a sliced carrot and some grape tomatoes to make more of a salad too. Big hit. My mouth is still a little spiced from the peppercorns and I love it! excellent!

This is a really good recipe. I have a sensitivity to pepper so I only used 1/2 teaspoon. The sauce seemed a little salty to me but maybe using more pepper would have offset the salty taste a little bit.It may have also been the soy sauce I used. The sauce was still really good. I think next time I makethis recipe, I will use a low sodium soy sauce. This recipe is easy to make. Thanks for a great recipe S'kat

A very nice, quick and tasty recipe. I didn't have green onions so I used a shallot instead. I also grated 1/8 teaspoon of lemon rind into the pepper/sesame mixture. I used a mix of black, red and white pepper. Served it with sautéed shitake mushrooms and snow pea pods.

This was really good! I cut back on pepper because I thought it might be a bit spicy for my taste, and I didn't have any green onions...Other than that I followed the recipe exactly and will make sure to have green onions on hand next time. The tuna was cooked perfectly and the sauce was delicious!

An absolute favourite - just dont over cook the tuna and remember - good tuna is worth the price!

Awesome recipe!! Super easy to follow. I didn't have red wine or sherry but the tuna steaks turned out really tasty. Used a charcoal Weber grill.

I actually needed a recipe for a couple of tuna steaks that were cooked and left over from the night before. This recipe was perfect. I added some sauteed asparagus and cubed the tuna steaks for a quick stir fry with the recipe for the sauce. It was wonderful and quick. Some brown rice rounded off the meal. Thanks for posting!
