From epicurious, Bon Appétit, January 1998. This is a wonderful recipe--the mayo is bright and flavorful, and would be useful in countless other recipes. I left the tuna steaks rare inside. Really wonderful recipe :) I served this with a sweet and sour coleslaw and a fresh potato salad, and corn on the cob.
