Seared tuna steak with wasabi mayo sauce

You can get a decent frozen tuna steak from trader joes. Just let it defrost in the fridge overnight and...

soy sauce
sesame oil
rice wine vinegar and/or mirin
(or white wine vinegar and lemon juice in my case since I had neither)

Mix this stuff in a zip lock bag, throw in the tuna, and let it marinate on the counter for about 30 minutes. You want it to warm up a little.

Heat a small amount of sesame oil in a skillet on Med-high heat. Once hot, put the tuna in the skillet and sear it for about a minute on each side. Seared tuna is best served seared. Rare. So don't overdo it. Shown here served with jasmine rice and the wasabi mayo sauce.

Wasabi paste
Soy sauce- just a little bit

This steak was about a pound. Which is easily two servings.
