Tuna with Wasabi Sauce Recipe

Wasabi mayonnaise can be found in the Asian section of your local supermarket. Wasabi, an Asian plant similar to horseradish, has a fiery flavor. Add some plain mayonnaise to make a milder sauce.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 5 min. + marinating Grill: 10 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium teriyaki sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 4 tuna steaks (8 ounces each)
  • 1/2 cup wasabi mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onion
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice


  • 1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the teriyaki sauce, vinegar and oil; add tuna. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for up to 1 hour. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, onion and lemon juice until blended. Refrigerate until serving.
  • 2. Drain and discard marinade. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Grill tuna, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 5-6 minutes on each side or until medium-rare or until slightly pink in the center. Serve with wasabi sauce. Yield: 4 servings.
