This delicious recipe is almost a lesson in Japanese cooking since it features many of that country's most commonly used ingredients. While yellowfin tuna (ahi) is prized in Japanese dishes like sashimi and sushi, it is generally eaten raw - as is the case in this recipe. If you prefer your tuna cooked, pan-fry it until crisp on the outside and cooked as you like within, then proceed with this recipe.
