"This spicy pepper coating and asian-style sauce prove that you can't go wrong with the simplest of ingredients. Add a touch of chili-garlic paste to the sauce for a hint of fire. This recipe is altered from original Bon Appetit."

"This was very good, although I would use probably half of the pepper suggested. I do enjoy spicy food, but this was a little too peppery for my and my husband's taste buds. I agree, the sauce is excellent on other things... I served the tuna with a mixed baby green lettuce side, and sauteed snow peas, and they both got some of the sauce on them and it was delicious! I also served broiled, parmesean,covered thick sliced tomato with it. My husband asked me to make it again sometime, and I agree, it is worth doing again, low cal, tasty, and easy. Try it!!!"
"My first successful tuna steaks! Every other time they were overcooked and flavor-lacking. Served them on a bed of mesclun and had to substitute a few rings of real onions and a leek instead of green onions. I threw in a sliced carrot and some grape tomatoes to make more of a salad too. Big hit. My mouth is still a little spiced from the peppercorns and I love it! excellent!"
"Boy, oh boy, was this great! Thanks, s'kat, for another great way to serve tuna steaks. Ddidn't change a thing and the directions were totally clear. Thanks, again. "
"This is a really good recipe. I have a sensitivity to pepper so I only used 1/2 teaspoon. The sauce seemed a little salty to me but maybe using more pepper would have offset the salty taste a little bit.It may have also been the soy sauce I used. The sauce was still really good. I think next time I makethis recipe, I will use a low sodium soy sauce. This recipe is easy to make. Thanks for a great recipe S'kat"
"A very nice, quick and tasty recipe. I didn't have green onions so I used a shallot instead. I also grated 1/8 teaspoon of lemon rind into the pepper/sesame mixture. I used a mix of black, red and white pepper. Served it with sautéed shitake mushrooms and snow pea pods."
"This was really good! I cut back on pepper because I thought it might be a bit spicy for my taste, and I didn't have any green onions...Other than that I followed the recipe exactly and will make sure to have green onions on hand next time. The tuna was cooked perfectly and the sauce was delicious!"
"Wow was this good!! Served over rice to catch the sauce. Love it!"
"An absolute favourite - just dont over cook the tuna and remember - good tuna is worth the price!"
"Awesome recipe!! Super easy to follow. I didn't have red wine or sherry but the tuna steaks turned out really tasty. Used a charcoal Weber grill."
"I actually needed a recipe for a couple of tuna steaks that were cooked and left over from the night before. This recipe was perfect. I added some sauteed asparagus and cubed the tuna steaks for a quick stir fry with the recipe for the sauce. It was wonderful and quick. Some brown rice rounded off the meal. Thanks for posting!"
"This was a fairly easy recipe to do and made a fantastic dinner. You would pay a lot of money for something like this in a restaurant. The one thing I'd do different next time is use two pans on the stove. I'd use one to do the sauce and then do the tuna in the other pan so that you could time it to have both ready at the same time. Thanks for the recipe s'kat!"
"This was incredible. I did not have sesame seeds or green onions and it still was 5 star! I just wish I had made something to put that incredible sauce over. Next time I will make a noodle bowl as a side and use the left over sauce."
"Delicious!! Prepared last night without changing any ingredients and it was perfect. A keeper. Great presentation, also. I served with roasted brussels sprouts and red peppers along with fried rice and Italian baked bread to complete the meal.."
"This was delicious. I used the suggestion of one of the reviewers to serve it with a spring green salad and cherry tomatoes. The sauce made a great salad dressing. I also served garlic bread. My husband said he felt like he was at a really good restaurant."
"After reading this recipe, I immediately, went shopping, remembering, that my local market had tuna steaks on sale. The timing of 1 - 1 1/2 minutes was perfect and it worked well on a bed of fresh cooked spinach. Surrounding it with cherry tomatoes, made a perfect picture. This recipe will stay on my radar."
"Great recipe! Served on a bed of spring greens with cherry tomatoes."
"Excellent! My husband and I absolutely love it. It's super simple as well. Thank you for sharing this one!"
"Very tasty indeed. I used half quantities of peppercorns as one reviewer suggested but will use full amount next time. I didn't have quite enough soy sauce so topped up with nam pla which worked well. Will be adding this to my repertoire."
"Fast to make and delicious."
