Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rinse tuna steak and pat dry.
  2. Combine sesame seeds, wasabi powder, soy sauce, honey and sesame oil in a shallow pan. Add steak, turning to coat both sides. Let marinate for 10 minutes, then turn and marinate for 10 minutes more.
  3. Heat peanut oil in a heavy nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook steak to desired doneness, about 2 minutes per side for a nice sear on the outside and a rare middle or 3 minutes for medium-rare.
  4. Top with a sprinkle of green onions, if desired, and a squeeze of lime.

Fantastic ahi, and so easy to do. I served it with mashed potatoes and a veggie.

Easy, easy, easy...did I mention how easy this is? Great flavor and oh so quick, only 4 minutes after the set-aside marinate time.
