  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Mix together the mayonnaise, wasabi paste, five-spice powder, and 1 tablespoon soy sauce in a small bowl.
  2. Lay the tuna fillets into a glass baking dish. Pour the rice vinegar and 1 tablespoon soy sauce over the tuna. Spread the mayonnaise mixture evenly over both sides of each piece of fish. Cover the dish and refrigerate 15 to 30 minutes.
  3. Prepare a skillet with cooking spray and place over medium-high heat. Sprinkle the sesame seeds evenly over both sides of the fillets. Lay the tuna gently into the skillet. Grill to desired level of doneness, about 2 minutes per side for medium-rare. Serve immediately.

Was delicious. I doubled the sauce and after marinating the tuna, I cooked up the sauce and served it over top of the fish. My husband and his friend were licking the plate.

Made this as 2 servings for my husband and I. Served with rice and oriental vegetables. Yum!

Instead of Yellowfin Tuna, I substituted it for Tilapia and flash fried each filet. It was realy good. I served the fish topped with fresh scallions chopped and squeezed lemon juice on top. Yum...

This was tasty, but all the marinade burnt off in the pan. I might have had the heat too high, and i'm still adjusting to new non-non-stick pans. Worth another try.
