  • Wasabi Smashed Potatoes:
  • 4 russet potatoes, cubed
  • 1 tablespoon wasabi, (use less if sensitive)
  • 1/4 cup soy milk
  • Pinch sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper
  • Teriyaki Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup mirin wine
  • 4 tablespoons low sodium tamari soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 4 knobs ginger, peeled
  • Pepper-Crusted Tuna Steak:
  • 4 yellowfin sushi-grade tuna steaks, 1-inch thick
  • 1/4 cup freshly cracked black pepper
  • 4 tablespoons canola oil
  • Cooking Directions

    To make the Wasabi Smashed Potatoes: Boil potatoes in salt water until fork tender, about 10 to 15 minutes. Strain and place in a big bowl. Add wasabi, soy milk, salt, and pepper and smash together. Don't over-mash.

    To make the Teriyaki Sauce: Heat a saucepan on medium, add mirin, tamari, honey, sesame oil, garlic, and ginger, bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes. Strain the sauce to remove garlic and ginger.

    To make the Pepper-Crusted Tuna Steak: Coat tuna steaks evenly on all sides with freshly-cracked black pepper. In a frying pan, heat the canola oil on high heat until smoking. Place steaks in frying pan and baste with teriyaki sauce. For medium rare steak: cook for 1 minute, flip and cook for another minute.

    Slice tuna against the grain to sever muscle, making tuna even more tender. Serve with a generous scoop of wasabi smashed potatoes. Drizzle teriyaki sauce over both
