  • 4 tuna steaks, each weighing about 4 ounces and cut 1 1/4-inches thick
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • handful of arugula leaves
  • 8 chives, finely chopped
for the marinade
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons sake

  • 1 garlic clove, minced
for the daikon dressing
  • 1/4 cup grated daikon (Japanese white radish)
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce

Tuna Steak Recipe Instructions
In a large bowl, mix all of the ingredients together for the marinade. Add the tuna steaks and let sit for at least thirty minutes. Turn tuna steaks once or twice.

While the tuna steak is marinating, mix all of the ingredients together for the daikon dressing in a small bowl.

Remove the tuna steak from the marinade the pat dry with paper towels. Brush one side of the tuna with half of the oil.

Heat a griddle pan or heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Make sure pan gets very hot before adding the tuna steak. Cook tuna steak for two minutes and brush the raw side of the tuna steak with the other half of the oil while cooking. After two minutes turn over and cook for another two minutes. (Tuna will be rare. If you like it more well done you can cook the second side up to five minutes.)

Transfer tuna steaks to a cutting board and slice. Arrange slices on serving plates. Spoon dressing over tuna slices and top of a few arugula leaves. Garnish with chopped chives.
