This was so amazingly good. We usually go out for this type of food. It took me a while to find the black sesame seeds, but it really make it a pretty looking dish. We found ours were a little overcooked as well at 3 min. per side but still found the flavors to be worth giving it 5 stars and will just cut down our cooking time next time. We also found this to be a quick no fuss dinner for even a week night. Served this on a bed of mixed greens tossed with a sweet and sour vinagrette and the steamed snap peas with wasabi butter for a little extra kick
That Wasabi Ponzu... Yowzaaaa. I will make that sauce for many other things. I can't wait to try it as a salad dressing as another reviewer said. My tuna was a little overcooked at 3 minutes per side, but it was the thinnest piece served and everyone else's was perfect. I guess keep your eye on the small pieces and flip them sooner (mine was around 3/4 inch thick, while the others around the table were closer to 1 inch or more, just for reference). Will make again!
Just ridiculously good and easy. I made just as written except that I doubled the sauce and used more ginger and a shake of crushed red pepper. Don't overcook your tuna! Served sauce at the table with soba noodles and asparagus, shallot, and red bell sauteed in a tsp. of sesame oil.
I didn't have wasabi but made a paste from dried mustard I had on hand. It was really good, with spiciness and sweetness. I'll definitely make this again. Served with roasted squash, zucchini and onions. My husband loved it.
Overall a fantastic sauce for tuna - also doubles very well as a salad dressing. Only complaint with the recipe is that the sauce is not sticky enough to coat the tuna like the picture.
I thought this was delicious. My DH hates fish but I make him eat it once a week (health reasons) so I'm always looking for fish recipes which aren't super "fishy". He really liked it and cleaned his plate. I cooked mine to mid-rare and cooked his to med-well. Since I dislike wasabi I made two ponzu sauces, one with wasabi for him and without for me. Served with brown rice and a quick stir fry veggie medley. Super good, quick, and easy. I would def make this again and would serve to to guests for a "special" meal considering how expensive tuna is.
This was delicious and very easy! I made it exactly as directed and it came out flawlessly! The only addition I might make is a little extra wasabi to kick up the bite a little bit! Served with sauteed sugar snap peas in lemon and garlic. DELICIOUS!
I love this recipe. It's ridiculously easy to prepare, delicious and makes your guests think you're an Iron Chef. My only recommendation - you might want to make more of the ponzu sauce. I find that I'm a little short if I follow the exact measurements of this recipe. I like to serve this with soba noodles and a simple salad with a sesame oil/soy sauce/sesame seed dressing.
The wasabi sauce was excellent! I kept it light on the mayo
supa dupa tuna!! we made this the first time for a friend's private wedding in a bed & breakfast cabin in northern alaska. it was sooooo good, we've made it many times since. we only "dredged" the outside perimeter of the tuna, which made it less sesame-seedy and also made it easier to see how done the tuna was. the sauce is simple and fantastic.
