For dressing: Combine all ingredients in a jar with a lid. Cover the jar and shake well. Refrigerate and shake well again before serving. Dressing will keep for 7 to 10 days in the refrigerator.
For tuna: Place tuna steaks on a plate. Mix oil and wasabi powder together until combined then coat tuna steaks with the mixture. Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 hour. Preheat the salt brick in the oven or on the grill to at least 450 degrees. Set marinated tuna steaks on salt brick and cook (in oven or on grill) for about 4 min. per side. Remove tuna from salt brick and let cool. Slice tuna against the grain and set on top of a bed of greens and top with dressin and a sprinkle of sesame seeds.
If you want to skip the salad, serve the tuna with the dressing on the side as a dipping sauce.
