Wasabi Sesame Tuna

If you like the flavor of wasabi, you will like this tuna recipe.



  1. In shallow dish, combine soy sauce, wasabi paste and pepper. Mix well.
  2. Add the tuna and turn thoroughly coating both sides.
  3. Let sit for 10 minutes or plan ahead and let marinate overnight in a zipper bag or food saver bag.
  4. Coat a pan with non-stick cooking spray or one turn of the pan with olive oil. Heat pan on medium to high heat.
  5. Place the sesame seeds in another shallow dish, add the tuna and turn to coat completely.
  6. Sear the tuna for 1 to 2 minutes per side, or until browned or cooked to desired doneness. Slice thinly and serve with brown rice or vegetables.
  7. Note: fish cooks fast! It will be dry and chewy if overcooked. These do not come out of a pan fiery hot, but with wasabi flavor. You can always add more heat if you wish.
