You can make this dish in under five minutes. This Ponzu incorporates two very common ingredients when it comes to oriental cuisine; Soy Sauce and Wasabi! I absolutely love wasabi. Despite its sinus-cleansing heat, I find wasabi to have very intriguing layers of flavor. In this recipe the wasabi really takes the Ponzu to a new level by adding that little something extra.
For the Ponzu, you'll want to start out by bringing the soy sauce, chicken stock, olive oil, and lemon juice to a simmer in a saucepan. Combine wasabi and water to make a paste, then add it to the Ponzu.
Heat a small amount of olive oil in a saute pan. When the oil is about to smoke, add your tuna and sear briefly on all sides. I like my tuna "blue" which requires about 6 seconds per side. Your time will vary depending on the size of the fish; just use your best judgement.
After the fish has rested, slice the tuna much like Tataki. I serve my tuna with Jasmine rice, ginger, and lemon zest, and the Ponzu on the side for dipping.
