Recipe by DangerBun
READY IN: 23mins




  • Heat oven to 200 degrees.
  • Heat a skillet on your stove to medium high.
  • Grind a generous amount of pepper onto one side of tuna steaks (skip this if using chicken and see intro for instructions).
  • Add oil to the pan. When it's very hot, add the tuna steaks, pepper side down. Cook for 1-2 minutes per side, until seared but still rare in the center. Remove from the pan and keep warm on a plate, tented with foil, in a 200 degree oven.
  • In the medium-high pan where you seared the tuna (or chicken), add butter, onion, ginger and garlic. Sautee for a minute, just until the garlic becomes translucent (don't let it brown).
  • Add shiitakes and cook, without stirring, until they brown slightly. Add the soy sauce and cream. Let it cook until it thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon. Add the lime juice and cilantro.
  • Serve tuna, fish or chicken hot atop a bed of greens. Add wasabi mashed potatoes alongside. Top all with the sauce, and garnish with cilantro or chive sprigs.
