Seared Tuna with Soy Wasabi Glaze
Low Carbohydrate Recipe
The glaze on this tender tuna is delicious! But you do want to be careful not to overcook the tuna. It is best rare to medium rare.
4 6-ounce fresh tuna steaks, about 3/4-inch thick
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
8 tablespoons cold unsalted butter
3 green onions, thinly sliced
1-2 tablespoons fresh lime or lemon juice
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1-2 tablespoons prepared wasabi
Brush tuna steaks on both sides with the oil and season with salt and pepper. Combine the butter, onion, lime juice, soy sauce and wasabi in a small pan. Heat a heavy, nonstick frying pan over high heat. Place the tuna in the pan and sear until crispy and brown. Turn over and sear the other side. Be careful not to overcook the tuna. It is best rare to medium rare.
While the tuna is cooking, heat the butter mixture over low heat, stirring constantly until smooth and emulsified. Serve the tuna immediately, drenched with the sauce.
