salt & freshly ground black pepper
Searing the Ahi Tuna Steaks:
Slightly marinate the tuna steaks in white wine/ rice wine, salt and pepper ( both white and black pepper), and smear some wasabi paste on top of the tuna steak. Let it sit for about 15 minutes. In a hot pan, heat up sesame oil with low heat and saute onions. Add tuna steak and sear on both sides until cooked. Cut the tuna steaks into triangles ( triangles always taste better!)
Assembling the salad:
Rinse and drain greens, toss in sliced roma tomatoes and chopped baby carrots ( for a good crunch). Drizzle wasabi vinaigrette. Lay the triangle tuna steaks on top of salad. Add the cooked sliced onions on top of the tuna steaks. Sprinkle chopped spring onions, and crushed wasabi peas. Toss before serving.
