Once again, Chef Wolfgang Puck is in charge of the menu for the exclusive Governors Ball following the Oscars. You, too, can eat like a star by following Puck's recipe for Tuna Tataki with Sweet Soy below.


  • 1 pound sushi grade tuna (2" x 2" x 8" block
  • 1 ounce raw black and white sesame seeds
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Wasabi Whipped Cream
  • 1 teaspoon wasabi paste (if using powdered, mix with a little water to make a paste)
  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons sweet soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon pickled ginger, chopped
  • Cooking Directions

    Season all sides of the tuna block with salt and pepper. Sprinkle all sides with sesame seeds. Heat the olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, quickly sear the tuna on all sides, about a minute per side. Remove from the pan and refrigerate immediately. Cut into 6 pieces. Combine the wasabi paste and whipping cream in a medium mixing bowl, and whisk thoroughly.

    Paint some of the soy sauce on each serving plate. Set a block of the tuna onto the sauce. Garnish with chopped pickled ginger and wasabi whipped cream.
