Top Review by The Flying Chef

All I can say is wow!! This was superb I did not cut tuna as listed, I cooked as a whole and even over cooked to our liking, my fault got distracted. It was still so full of flavour and we loved the wasabi mayonnaise, I really love the pickled ginger and it went so well on top of the tuna. The only change I made was after I marinated it I topped it with regular and black sesame seeds. I served over vegetables and it was perfect. A great post and this will become a regular, as we love tuna and this was the perfect way to make it. Thanks Fairy Nuff, superb recipe:)
