This tuna is seared and still raw insde so be sure to get sushi quality tuna. I myself like it that way!

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.
