Our best attempt to replicate some great seared tuna we found in downtown Portland one evening. The sauce is heaven.

Directions

  1. Trim tuna to be clean with no straggler pieces hanging loose. Salt and pepper all sides. rub garlic and onion on all sides.
  2. Mix soy sauce and soyabi sauce. Add wasabi paste to taste. Finely chop half of pickled ginger, add to sauce.
  3. Heat frypan till water drops sizzle.
  4. Add small amount of oil to pan.
  5. Add tuna to pan pouring small amount of sauce around tuna.
  6. Sear no more than 30 to 45 seconds per side of tuna. Just long enough to brown thoroughly.
  7. Remove from heat and slice in 1/4" thin slices with a very sharp knife.
  8. Cool thouroughly for best flavor. Serve with reserved ginger and wasabi paste along with remainder of sauce and sesame seeds.

Wonderful. This is a beautiful way to prepare tuna. The flavor of the tuna is delicately preserved by not overcooking. We really enjoyed this.
