Very good! I used cilantro and the flavors were perfect. I normally do the Ahi Tuna with the wasabi butter which is still my favorite. I'm cooking that next week and wanted to do something different.

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!!!

This was the first time I ever cooked Tuna rare, and it was great!! The sauce was easy and delicious. The only thing I did different was add extra wasabi for more heat. It was the fanciest looking plating I've ever done, I even had to take a picture to brag. I served it with Lemon Dressing on Greens, lemon dressing on greens, and they went great together. Very nice!

Anything with wasabi has got to be good; in fact, it saved the whole recipe. I seared the tuna on my new grill, basting it as it cooked and then liberally poured on the wasabi butter sauce. Perhaps I was expecting too much. My DH and I thought that it tasted rather plain, except for the kick from the wasabi, without any of the other flavors, like ginger or onion coming through. While we did eat every bite, sopping up the sauce, I'm not sure I would make this sauce again without trying something different to give it a bit more character and substance.
