This was great! Loved it. Added much more wasabi than called for. I didn't notice until after I had made the sauce about the note about mirin and that it can be sweet in the cheaper versions. The sauce was sweet but it was SO GOOD. Loved it! The tuna was awesome with the seasame seeds.
Would make again after finding a better mirin.

Yummy recipe! This was so simple to prepare and so delicious. I enjoyed eating the tuna medium rare (really dislike over cooked fish). I like the crispy nutty flavour of the sesame seed cooked with the tuna, will try that method with other fishes as well. Hubby really enjoyed the dipping sauce. The directions made it so easy to follow and we had a very health dinner within minutes. I served the tuna with Gomae - Japanese Style Spinach Salad - Thank you The Flying Chef for a wonderful recipe

Vicki in Ct's photo had me hooked! I love rare tuna and this recipe is a gem! The flavors are typical of many sauces in Japan, which are really delicious, with a little sweet, sour combo, which we all love here. This will be made often because it's excellent!

Another amazing recipe by flying chef. Four minutes per side is perfect for a rare tuna, which is my preference. Topped with scallions and Thai chiles. Loved the crunchy sesame crust. Didn't have wasabi, thus the chiles. Thanks for posting a great recipe.
