A Little Punch Goes a Long Way
Mention fresh tuna and what comes to mind? To us, it is a lightly seared tuna steak. The wonderful thing about tuna is its versatility. You can sear it, grill it, serve it thinly sliced atop a salad, or serve the tuna steak whole. Tuna also takes to a variety of crusts, although one of our favorites is sesame seeds, and can handle a light orange sauce as well as a more powerful wasabi cream.
This recipe is based on four 8-ounce Boston Sword & Tuna tune steaks. Also, be aware the wasabi comes in different intensities, so add half of the wasabi paste and taste test before adding more.
You’ll be surprised at the freshness of our tuna, which is why we are fast becoming the place to go for gourmet fresh seafood home delivery online.

For the Sauce
- 2 Tbl butter

- Prepare the tuna by sprinkling with sea salt. Put the sesame seeds in a shallow dish and dredge tuna through seeds, both sides.

- While the sauce sites, heat olive oil in a large, non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the tuna to the pan and cook three minutes on each side, or until desired degree of doneness.
- After you flip the tuna to cook on the other side, add the wasabi paste to the sauce and mix well.
