Seared Ahi Tuna with Wasabi Mayo

My hubby is in love with this fish, he said he’s had a bad impression of fish his whole life and this changes it for him. I ended up overcooking one of the tuna steaks and he liked that even better. Once he had his fill of this recipe, I used the leftover tuna to make a tuna salad for him to have later. He’s stoked. I don’t think I’ll make this particular recipe again but we’ll be having more Ahi in the future.
