Asian Tuna Bites with Dijon Dipping Sauce Recipe

Publisher Photo
Quick, easy and fresh with big, bold and bright flavors, this healthy dish is a snap to make and beautiful to serve. It can be made up to 8 hours ahead, and the tuna can be grilled instead of cooked in the pan. —Jamie Brown-Miller, Napa, California
