Another great recipe from one of our team members, Chris Konczak:
4 each, 6 ounce tuna steaks (Sushi Grade)
2 tablespoons peanut oil
3 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup green onion, sliced
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
2 tablespoons ginger, minced
2 tablespoons garlic, minced
8 ounces shiitake mushrooms, sliced
1/3 cup soy sauce
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
3 tablespoons lime juice, FRESH
1 each – lime, cut in wedges
As Needed – Black Pepper, Freshly Ground
FOR THE SAUCE:
In large sauté pan, add butter, ginger, garlic & 1/2 of the cilantro. Sauté until fragrant. (About one minute)
Mix in mushrooms, Green Onions, Lime Juice and soy sauce. Simmer for 1 minute.
Add whipping cream and simmer, stirring occasionally, until sauce is reduced by 1/3 and coats the back of a spoon.
FOR THE TUNA:
Heat oil in a heavy bottomed skillet over medium-high heat.
Sprinkle one side of tuna steaks with fresh black pepper and sear in hot oil (about 2 minutes per side for medium).
Plate the tuna steak, peppered side up, and ladle sauce over tuna.
Garnish with lime wedges and cilantro sprigs.
