  • “Excellent recipe!We really enjoyed both the tuna and the sauce!!!I added a little more wasabi to the sauce because it wasn’t hot enough for me…I like it hot!!!My husband and my 6 year old loved this as well.I used low fat mayo and reduced sodium soy.Made as directed…but cooked the tuna about 5 minutes on each side so that it was only pink in the middle, not as rare…because even though we used sushi grade my husband has this thing about meats still red….LOL!!It was still delish as medium rare.”

  • “GREAT! For a stiffer sauce (more like mayo)I would suggest using just the rice wine vinegar to make the wasabi paste.”

  • “This is a delicious recipe that is easy to prepare and great for summertime! The sauce is not as biting as you might think because wasabi is calmed when mixed with other ingredients, so I prepared a wasabe paste to serve on the plates as a garnish for those who like it hot. The sauce did need to be doubled to have enough to go around but was very tasty and creamy with a mild wasabe flavor. I would prepare this recipe again, and think it is a great addition to an Asian meal.”

  • “This recipe is absolutely delicious. The wasabi isn’t too overpowering, but it gives the tuna great flavor. Anybody who loves tuna and wasabi has to try this!!!!”

  • “You were right this is an EXCELLENT and easy dinner…tasty too!I served it with recipe#203925#203925 and recipe#137204#137204.What a fabulous meal and one I will make again.Made for Let’s PARTY 2011 tag game.”

  • “WOW! This was absolutely delicious. I licked the plate to get the last bit of sauce. We were out of soy sauce, and were worried that we’d ruin the taste making it with substitutions, but it was still amazing. We will certainly be making this recipe again.”

  • “Fantastic!I doubled the sauce after reading reviews, and was glad I did.The sauce really complements the tuna.This recipe is a keeper!”

  • “MAKE THIS IMMEDIATELY!!!Who could have thought eating Tuna could be comparable to eating filet mignon!But it was!!!!This was beyond fantastic!FABULOUS!!Will be making this again and again!Thank you chasfoodie for posting this!I used Wasabi paste and omitted the water.I also used low fat mayo with olive oil and reduced sodium soy sauce.PERFECTLY seasoned.I’m ashamed to admit I made my tuna a bit well done.Only way I can eat it…but wouldn’t change a thing.TO DIE FOR!”

  • “This is a real keeper. Followed the directions but doubled and added more wasabi powder to the sauce as we like it hotter. Served with Sesame Ginger Asparagus #79216 as suggested by Dr. Jenny. Thanks so much!!!!!”

  • “Great recipe!I added a extra tablespoon of sesame oil to the tuna and pan sear it!Yum!”

  • “Fantastic recipe!I served on salad greens with avocado and mango, with the wasabi sauce as dressing.Definitely a repeat!”

  • “Excellent!I served with Recipe #134053 as an appetizer and Recipe #10395 as a salad.Wonderful Meal.”

  • “Excellent sauce. I make this often.”

  • “OMG!!This is so amazing!!The only thing different that I did was to lightly salt the Tuna before brushing with marinade and sprinkled with coarsely ground pepper before serving.I usually leave food on my plate, but this recipe left me wanting more!!Will definitely make again and again!!”

  • “Amazing!!!!I bought some wasabi powder a while back on clearance, I couldn’t find anything to use with it though.Thank you so much for this recipe.”

  • “My new favorite!I came across some beautiful tuna and had to find the perfect recipe.This was it!Couldn’t find the wasabi powder, so for the sauce I omitted the water and used wasabi paste.I used the dry hot mustard for the tuna though.Very very good!!!!”

  • “I thought the ahi was very good; I marinated it for about 10 minutes before grilling (per a previous reviewer’s suggestion).My DH was not wild about the horseradish sauce, but he’s kind of a traditionalist.A+.”
