Whenever I hear people say you shouldn't ruin fresh fish at the sushi bar by dipping it in copious amounts of wasabi-spiked soy sauce, I think to myself, yeah, but that's how I like it. Sometimes I just don't care about overpowering the natural flavors, and this grilled yellowfin tuna with freshly grated horseradish sauce recipe is one of those times.

Quick and easy recipe to make, in addition it was fantastic. One thing I changed, because I could not locate chili paste at my grocery store, I used Siracha sauce and added in more horseradish shavings to kick up the hea. I highly recommend trying this recipe out, not only for Tuna, but for any other grilled fish. Read More

This was good but I think there are better tuna recipes on this site. I didn't have any tomatoes which I think would have helped. Husband liked it better than I. Read More

When I read Chef John's introduction I knew this was the recipe for us. We too love to drown our sushi in copious amounts of wasabi in soy sauce. I used 1 tbsp of horseradish powder instead of fresh and Frank's Hot Sauce as I didn't have hot chile paste. It was awesome! Thanks Chef John for the simplest yet delicious recipe! It's my go to recipe for fresh tuna steaks. Read More

Excellent with the fresh horseradish. I found with a little more chile paste it brought a little more heat to the dish. Very easy to prepare. Read More

I thought this was great! I added a little extra horseradish root. It was super simple which is always a plus. Since we have a freezer full of tuna I enjoyed that this tasted different than so many other tuna recipes. Read More

I really enjoyed the flavors of the sauce (I put a little bit over my rice as well)! I did sub prepared horseradish for the fresh (because that's what I had on hand). Made for a nice "meatless Monday" meal. Read More
