This is a wonderful recipe that is so quick and easy to prepare and is great either on the grill, if it is BBQ weather or just done in the frying pan as I cooked it the other night. Depending on how you like your tuna cooked it is on the table in about 15-20 Min's. I like my tuna pink in the middle as tuna should be undercooked, otherwise it gets quite tough.

  2. Combine pepper mixture with oil and fish in a large bowl cover stand 5 Min's.
  3. Meanwhile combine mayonnaise, wasabi, coriander and juice in a bowl.
  4. Heat a large frying pan, add fish, cook about 2-3 Min's aside, for pink centre, or until cooked as desired, or BBQ steaks.
