Ingredients   [ For 2 to 4 people ]    [   Preparation time : 15 minute  –  Cooking time : 15 minutes  ]

  • ½ cup panko bread crumbs (or gluten free panko)
  • 3 tablespoons black and white sesame seeds
  • 4 (5-ounce) raw ahi or yellowfin tuna steaks (I used Trader Joes frozen ahi tuna steaks)
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Canola oil or cooking spray
  • 2 tablespoons reduced sodium or gluten-free soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon prepared wasabi paste
  • 2 teaspoons minced shallots
  • ¼ cup white wine (I used Sauvignon Blanc)
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk
  • 2 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 4 cups fresh baby arugula
  • 4 cups fresh baby spinach
  • Sliced radish, for garnish (optional)
  • Sliced cucumber, for garnish (optional)

Preparation Method

  1. Mix panko and sesame seeds on a large plate or shallow bowl.
  2. Season tuna with salt and pepper, to taste.  Gently press both sides of each tuna steak into the crumb mixture.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and spray with oil.
  4. Add 2 steaks, spray each with oil and allow them to cook 2-3 minutes, or until the outer edge becomes opaque. Flip each steak, spray the second side with oil and cook an additional 2 minutes, or until the outer edge is opaque. Repeat with remaining 2 steaks.
  5. Set all 4 steaks on a cutting board and allow them to rest and cool.
  6. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine soy sauce and wasabi paste.  Set aside.
  7. In a small skillet over medium-low heat, add shallots and wine. Simmer until reduced by half, 2-3 minutes.  Add the milk and whisk constantly until the sauce no longer looks separated and has slightly thickened (about 1 minute).
  8. Remove from heat and whisk in soy and wasabi paste mixture. Add butter and whisk to combine.
  9. Distribute arugula and spinach evenly among 4 shallow bowls. Thinly slice the tuna and top each bed of lettuce with 1 tuna steak.  Drizzle each with about 1 ½ tablespoons of sauce.
