Sensei Post in Recipes and Health Facts

24 ounces ahi tuna steaks, around 1-inch thick
2 tablespoons dark sesame oil
salt and pepper
1/2 cup butter
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons wasabi paste (the tube kind)
3 green onions, sliced
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
lemon slices (for garnish)
1. Drizzle sesame oil on both sides of each tuna steaks. Season with salt and pepper.
2. Combine remaining ingredients in a small sauce pan. Heat over low heat until butter is melted, stirring constantly to mix and prevent scorching.
3. While sauce is heating, heat a heavy frying pan on another burner with high heat. Place tuna in pan and sear until crispy and brown. Turn and sear on the other side.
Note: Tuna steak fans who like their tuna on the rare side will usually find 2 minutes searing time is ample. Folks who like their tuna steaks more well-done may want to sear their tuna for 4-5 minutes per side.
Eat up and Enjoy!
