Loved this recipe! Easy, light and refreshing. I of couse had to add some additional things for preference. First I used sesame oil instead of canola. For a better presentation I also used white and black sesame seeds. Lastly salsa isn't salsa to me with out onion, garlic and cilantro so I added some of each. FANTASTIC!

An outstanding recipe. I used a sushi grade of Ahi Tuna and made the recipe exactly as directed. The flavors were very complimentary of one another. This dish presents very well for entertaining. I only regret that I ate it before I took a photo of it, to submit. Thanks for a keeper!!

Absolutely delicious!! I couldn't find wasabe powder, so I just used wasabe paste. My husband tasted the summer salsa without the tuna and didn't like it at all. BUT when served with the tuna, both of us thought it was perfect. I will definitely make this dish again.
