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.
I dislike when people write reviews with significant changes to the recipe ... That being said I made two changes: 1) used lime juice instead of lemon and 2) I made this into a compound butter rather than a hot butter sauce. I mix all of the ingredients thoroughly, sometimes with a mixer, then roll (quarter diameter size) into plastic wrap and chill. We slice the butter compound into small discs and serve in top of the hot seared tuna. Really, really good!
Simple and very easy to prepare. Wasabi butter sauce was delicious. Highly recommended.
This was excellent. I came across 2 Ahi Tuna Filets (rectangular) in our local market and was so excited (they usually only have the tuna steaks) to make this. I love Tuna Tataki from our local Sushi restaurant. I decided to encrust the tuna with sesame seeds before searing. I combined half of the amount of the oils called for (together) and rubbed onto the seasoned tuna and then pressed the filets into the sesame seeds, which I had spread onto a plate. The only other change I made was to use lime juice instead of lemon for the sauce and added some ground ginger. I made half of the sauce, but it was so good, I wished I had made the full amount. I served the tuna with sautéed fresh baby spinach. Delish! Thanks for sharing, this one will be a repeat!
This was easy and over the top delish! My husband had just come back from a business trip where he ate at some very good restaurants and said this was by far the best meal of the week. I used a Wasabi powder and adjusted it just a bit as it is stronger. LOVE this recipe!
Holy Cow was this good! Went perfect with Ahi Tuna! My hubby went on and on how good this was. I can't wait to eat the leftovers for lunch today. The sauce is PERFECT with Ahi! I will make this every time I make Ahi for now on.
Love, Love, Love this recipe. I didn't have wasabi, but used the other ingredients and for once everyone (including kids) lapped it up. thank you for the recipe!!
Fantastic sauce! It would go very nicely with other fish like salmon, too. I halved the butter, was plenty still.
Used real wasabi, this was wonderful!
Easy, yummy and MAKE it!
