  • In a shallow dish, combine the soy sauce, wasabi paste and cracked black pepper; mix well.

  • Let sit for 10 minutes or plan ahead and let marinate overnight in a zipper bag or foodsaver bag.
  • Coat a pan with nonstick cooking spray and preheat over high heat.
  • Place the sesame seeds in another shallow dish, add the tuna and turn to coat completely.

    I didn't taste any wasabi, but it was otherwise ok.

    Takes more advance planing if you want to marinade over night, but worth it, a mild wasabe flavour develops; I added a little more wasabe on the side and also the ginger recommended below Not something I will make too often but still a keeper.

    FANTASTIC!! Had no wasabi paste, used powder and a bit of rice vinegar as substitute. Also made a plate sauce by mixing 2T wasabi powder, 1t rice vinegar and ( for heat's sake...) 1 t fresh horseradish.HINT: The Cracked pepper is KEY to success of this recipe!! This was made as "trial" recipe for family coming in town next week...is DEFINITELY a WINNER and WILL be served! Thanks, DandyDon!

    This came out fabulously! I live in a tiny NYC apartment, so no grilling for me, but I fried my tuna in dark sesame oil, which turned out just great. I served it with extra wasabi on the side and pickled ginger.
