    VenomousKate's Note:

    I've always loved wasabi with tuna, but usually the wasabi overpowers such a delicate fish. When this recipe came to me through a friend, who doesn't recall its origins, I finally found the perfect marriage of flavors. I can't make this often enough!

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Drizzle sesame oil on both sides of each tuna steaks. Season with salt and pepper.
    2. 2
      Combine remaining ingredients in a small sauce pan. Heat over low heat until butter is melted, stirring constantly to mix and prevent scorching.
    3. 3
      While sauce is heating, heat a heavy frying pan on another burner with high heat. Place tuna in pan and sear until crispy and brown. Turn and sear on the other side.
    4. 4
      Note: Tuna steak fans who like their tuna on the rare side (like me) will usually find 2 minutes searing time is ample. Folks who like their tuna steaks more well-done (like my DH) may want to sear their tuna for 4-5 minutes per side.

      This was awesome!!!! I love tuna and this was a restaurant-quality dish. Definitely a great meal to make for guests! I used about 20 oz of tuna, but only made half the sauce....still more than enough and very tasty. We are low carb, but I bet this would be fantastic served with white or jasmine rice. I also coated the tuna in a mixture of black and white sesame seeds before searing and that really made it phenomenal.

      Fantastic sauce! It would go very nicely with other fish like salmon, too. I halved the butter, was plenty still.
