Spicy wasabi peas add a crisp crust to this delicious seared tuna recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup peas (wasabi)
  • 1 tablespoon black sesame seeds
  • 2 ahi tuna steaks (medium sized, thick sushi grade)
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • salt
  • wasabi paste
  • dipping sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger (grated)
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 green onion (chopped, for garnish)

Directions

  1. Pulse wasabi peas in a food processor until it forms a course powder. Place in a shallow dish for dredging such as a pie pan. Pat dry the tuna steaks and brush one tablespoon of canola oil on both sides. Sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper. Dredge tuna on all sides in wasabi peas to coat. Heat a medium cast iron skillet on high heat. Sear tuna for 3 minutes on first side and 2 minutes on second side until nicely seared on the outside and rare on the inside. Make sure to sear the sides as well. Take out of skillet and let rest on cutting board for 5 minutes. Slice thinly against the grain and serve with dipping sauce and wasabi paste.
  2. For the dipping sauce: Whisk together soy sauce, rice vinegar, ginger, and pepper flakes in a small bowl. Top with green onions to garnish and serve along side tuna slices.
