Wasabi Crusted Tuna

This is a simple, easy way to spice up a good tuna steak. You only need 3 ingredients! I used this on a .5 lb tuna steak, so just add more of everything if you are doing more steaks.
2 Tbs. prepared wasabi (I use the powdered kind in the little can)
1 C. of Panko (Japanese Bread Crumbs)

Tuna Steak(s)

Mix wasabi according to instructions on can, or just squeeze out 2 tbs. into a small bowl. Add bread crumbs and mix together thoroughly. Heat pan over med-high heat with some olive oil (oops, that's the 4th ingredient).

Pat the wasabi-panko mixture onto 1 side of your tuna steak so that it's about 1/4" thick. Cook fish breaded side down first for 3-4 min. then flip (carefully) and cook the other side for 3-4 min. Cooking time depends on the thickness of your steak and how rare you like it, this one is pretty rare so use your judgement.

This goes great with garlic aioli, I'll post that recipe as well.
