Directions

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

To make the teriyaki sauce:
Heat a saucepan on medium, add the 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 the garlic and ginger.

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

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

    This was the first recipe of Nadia's that I ever made, and it was fantastic then just as it is now. Absolutely amazing flavor (wasabi is so easy to adjust for everyone's palate), simple to make, and incredibly unique. I used to make it a lot, then moved and of course forgot all about it until recently. You should not EVER forget about this recipe! :)
    (And after reading some of the comments, yes, you need a really good hood/vent/open window to avoid smoking out your house. I usually just rip down my smoke detector and throw open the kitchen windows.)

    Love this teriyaki sauce! Yum! I want to find more things to put it on. I don't think you need sushi-grade tuna steaks. I used Albacore tuna steaks and it was delicious.

    Nadia comes through again! This teriyaki sauce is awesome, and a perfect compliment to the fish and the delicious wasabi potatoes. I had thicker steaks, so I cooked them for 2 minutes on each side, then put them on a plate and covered with plastic wrap for 5 minutes. I got a perfect sear, with a wonderful red, soft center. I will definitely add this to my rotation of healthy meals.
