  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium teriyaki sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar

  • 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.
