Wasabi-Encrusted Tuna Steak


Seared to perfection! This well-seasoned tuna steak, with a sweet and savory crust, is a recipe definitely worth repeating!


*Note: This recipe is for one, 4 oz., tuna steak. Feel free to double the recipe if you would like to add another steak. 

- 1, 4 oz. Yellowfin Tuna Steak
- 1 tsp. Chinese Five Spice
- 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
- 1 tsp. sesame oil
- 1/2 tsp. rice vinegar
- 1/2 tsp. brown sugar
- 1 tsp. Mirin (sweetened saki)
- 2 Tbs crushed wasabi peas

Preheat skillet over medium-high heat. Place tuna steak on a plate. Combine the rest of the ingredients down to wasabi peas (do not include those yet). Mix well and brush tuna steak with marinade. Reserve 1 1/2 tsp. marinade for tuna steak after it's cooked. Coat (both front and back) tuna steak with the crushed wasabi peas. Place in skillet and cook for about 2 1/2 minutes on each side. Remove tuna steak and brush with remaining marinade. Enjoy!
