  • 1
    In small bowl, mix all Wasabi Aioli ingredients. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
  • 2
    If tuna steaks are large, cut into 8 serving pieces. In shallow glass or plastic dish or resealable food-storage plastic bag, mix vegetable oil, soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, gingerroot and garlic. Add tuna; turn to coat with marinade. Cover dish or seal bag and refrigerate, turning once, at least 2 hours but no longer than 4 hours.
  • 3
    Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Remove tuna from marinade; reserve marinade. Cover and grill tuna about 4 inches from medium heat 10 to 15 minutes, brushing 2 to 3 times with marinade and turning once, until tuna flakes easily with fork. Discard any remaining marinade. Sprinkle tuna with sesame seed. Serve with Wasabi Aioli.

Expert Tips

  • Wasabi powder is the Japanese version of horseradish and has a sharp, pungent, fiery flavor.
  • To toast sesame seed, bake uncovered in ungreased shallow pan in 350°F oven 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown. Or cook in ungreased heavy skillet over medium heat about 2 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.
  • The Wasabi Aioli also makes a super sandwich spread. Spread on bread or buns instead of mayo, and top with your favorite deli meat or a juicy grilled burger.
