A delicious marinated tuna with a zingy cream!

4 appetizer or 2 main servings

Active Prep: 10 min
Cook: 2 min


  • For tuna:

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce (or tamari)*
  • 1/4 cup sesame oil
  • 3 Tbsp. * Asian Style Sprinkle
  • 2-4 oz. tuna steaks
  • For wasabi cream:

  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 4 tsp. * Wasabi Powder
  • 2 tsp. rice wine vinegar
  • * Black Tellicherry Peppercorns

Add all Savory items to cart


*Make this gluten-free by using tamari in place of soy sauce.


For tuna: In a zip-top bag, combine soy sauce, sesame oil and 2 Tbsp. Asian Style Sesame Sprinkle. Add tuna steaks and marinate for 1 to 2 hours. Remove tuna from marinade and dust with remaining 1 Tbsp. Asian Style Sesame Sprinkle. Sear on high heat (either on grill or in saute pan) for 30 seconds per side, or longer for more well-done fish. Remove from heat and slice against the grain into thin slices. Arrange on plate and set aside.

For wasabi cream: Combine all ingredients and mix thoroughly until a smooth and creamy green paste is achieved. Place a dollop of wasabi cream on each slice of seared tuna.


Serve as is for a finger food appetizer or with sushi rice for a main meal.
