niceNspicy 5y agoThis was EXCELLENT. I had purchased incredible Tuna at Sprouts. The recipe is BETTER than our local Restaurant (now our previous favorite) at 30.00 a plate! LOVED the sauce but lightened it up with half the butter and Fat Free half and half. Still OUTSTANDING! I did not strain the sauce because I thought the texture was good with the smooth and silky tuna. Served it with Forbidden rice with a bit of sesame oil, rice vinegar, soy and chives mixed in to taste and my lemon roasted Aparagus. SOOO good. I will make it again and again.
Slappy5150 5y agoI made this exactly following the recipe. While the last reviewer hit it spot on, the sauce has the most steps. It was very good but will possibly substitute I can't Believe It's not Butter or something else. The recipe calls for a whole stick Which IMO Is way too much unless your Paula Dean!!! Overall good but I sure do miss Maui grade Ahi!!!
SugarBee 8y agoThe hardest part is the Buerre Blanc (white butter) sauce - but it's the best part too. Not really hard - just lots of steps. It will keep well for amn hour or so before serving - just zap it in m-wave for a few seconds to warm it back up. IMPORTANT!!: barely sear the outside of the fish, just enough to toast the sesame seeds. Keep it VERY rare, or you'll ruin it.... My mother says this is the best thing she's ever put in her mouth in her life, I'm inclined to agree. Side dish suggestions: Steamed broccoli drizzled with hoisin sauce and sticky rice cooked with a few drops of sesame oil.. Simple, elegant and delicious.
