      this was quite good. i had a LOT of sauce left over, so i used it as a gravy on my wasabi mashed potatoes i served with this. I just wish there was a way to cut down the butter, so i might try altering this a bit.

      This is really great sauce for seared tuna. We both really liked it. The sauce takes awhile to reduce (mine took over 20 minutes) so make sure to plan accordingly.

      This was excellent. We used cilantro, but I think the parsley would have been great, too. We also used 1 tablespoon of wasabi paste because I'm afraid of that stuff. But, if I were to make it again, I would use 2 tablespoons. I've been so disappointed with internet recipes lately - this was a wonderful change!!!
