Get set to turn some heads with this stunner of a supper. Slice up our wild-caught tuna steaks to reveal that eye-catching and oh-so-tender pink interior. Dusted with a hot blend of nori and lemongrass, these chubby cuts take only minutes to sear to perfection. Pan-charred scallions give the sauce incredible oomph, melding with the tastes of lime, ponzu and sesame.
