Pan-seared tuna with ginger-shiitake cream sauce


*



A couple of inch thick tuna steaks
3 tbs butter
1/3 cup thinly sliced green onions
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
2 tbs peeled, finely chopped fresh ginger
4 garlic cloves, chopped 
8 oz fresh shiitake mushrooms, stemmed, caps sliced
4 tbs soy sauce
1 1/2 cups whipping cream
3 tbs fresh lime juice

Put the butter in a heavy saucepan and under medium heat toss in the onions, cilantro, ginger, and garlic, saute for 30 secs or so, then drop in the mushrooms and the soy sauce and give it another half minute. Add the cream and heat, stirring occasionally, till it coats the back of your spoon, about three minutes, add the lime juice. 

In another heavy skillet, heat up the peanut oil and under high heat toss the tuna steaks on, a minute or a minute fifteen seconds on each side. (Salt and pepper and pat dry the tuna beforehand).

top steaks with sauce, garnish with lime wedge and cilantro.


It goes nice with wasabe mashed potatoes, which is just make some mashed potatoes like you like and add 2 tbs wasabe powder and salt and pepper to taste.


Add a mixed green salad and some crusty baguette, bottle of wine...you'll get laid. 


Trust me.

Just how crazy is a shithouse mouse?

Maybe deep down inside, a shithouse mouse is remarkably sane.

I made this but subbed twice-baked sweet potatoes. (Wasabi powder's a a great idea for the mashed potatoes).

Thanks for the menu. I am getting a new washer/dryer out of it. Seriously.

Love, love LOVE the pic. Why are new stoves so visually unappealing compared to the old ones?

Plus the old ones come in sweet colors. Rachel Ray's stove is half of the reason I've ever watched her show. Why can't *I* have a yellow stove? Tell me yours is a brilliant color?!?!

Alas, the new condo not only has a new stove but (gasp) electric burners on the range. Le sigh.

As long as you're aware that you're crazy, you're not all that crazy :-)

take care,
christine
