Tuna Steaks with Wasabi Butter

Thank you Bill Kelly for sharing this recipe from Nancy. I found it in my ‘archives’ after many years of intending to post it here! 

1/4 cup toasted sesame oil

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/4 cup rice wine vinegar

2 TB sweet vermouth

1 TB brown sugar

1/4 cup soy sauce

2 TB chopped fresh ginger

3 cloves garlic, minced

3- 3 1/2 lbs. tuna steaks, 1 1/2” thick

1 stick unsalted butter

1 1/2 tsp green wasabi paste (or more to taste)

3 TB cilantro, chopped

Whisk together oils, vinegar, vermouth, sugar and soy sauce. Stir in ginger and garlic, then pour over fish and refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour. For the wasabi butter, beat together butter and wasabi paste until creamy. Mix in cilantro until well blended. 

Sauté tuna steaks to taste. Transfer to plate and top with a generous dollop of wasabi butter.
