I saw this recipe made on The Today Show years ago, 2002 or 2003, and printed from their web site. I have made it many times. I lost it during a move a couple of years ago and have missed it. Thanks so much for posting. By the way, I have found it to be too salty if you sear the tuna with salt and add salt as the recipe suggests. I leave out the salt and just sear the tuna with salt.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brush the tuna steaks with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place the tuna steaks in a very hot saute pan and cook for only 1 minute on each side. Set aside on a platter.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the olive oil, salt, pepper, lime zest, wasabi, lime juice, soy sauce and hot sauce. Add the avocados to the vinaigrette.
  3. Cut the tuna in chunks and place it in a large bowl. Add the scallions and red onion and mix well. Pour the vinaigrette mixture over the tuna and carefully mix.
