Loved this recipe! Easy light and refreshing. I of couse had to add some additional things for preference. First I used sesame oil instead of canola. For a better presentation I also used white and black sesame seeds. Lastly salsa isn't salsa to me with out onion garlic and cilantro so I added some of each. FANTASTIC! Read More

So... I used frozen tuna steaks my wasabi powder is old and mild and I substituted orange/peach/mango juice for the lime. Still this recipe was solidly unremarkable. The tuna steaks needed salt pepper or something more than sesame to flavor the bites without salsa. I ended up sprinkling my serving with cayenne to make it more interesting. Read More

An outstanding recipe. I used a sushi grade of Ahi Tuna and made the recipe exactly as directed. The flavors were very complimentary of one another. This dish presents very well for entertaining. I only regret that I ate it before I took a photo of it to submit. Thanks for a keeper!! Read More

Absolutely delicious!! I couldn't find wasabe powder so I just used wasabe paste. My husband tasted the summer salsa without the tuna and didn't like it at all. BUT when served with the tuna both of us thought it was perfect. I will definitely make this dish again. Read More

Wow! This recipe makes you look like a chef! I cubed my tuna and cooked it in a covered skillet with a little canola oil (I don't have a grill). I also had a little wasabi mayonnaise on the side. It was restaurant quality. Read More

This was delicious! I didn't even have to toast the sesame seeds they got nice and crispy while cooking on the tuna. I let them brown a lot which gave more flavor to the tuna. The salsa was incredible - I didn't even bother with the wasabi and it was very flavorful and a perfect combination with the sesame seeds. I don't have a grill so I did this in a heavy pan on the stove top. Read More

The summer salsa is the BEST part of this recipe. I've made it since on it's own for tortilla chips and think it would be great with tilapia or shrimp. This was fantastic with a nice semi dry white wine. Fantastic! Make sure your avocado and mango and nice and ripe. Read More
