This awesome, tender tuna steak sandwich will have your friends in raptures!
Simple and quick to grill, it is a winner everytime!
The Hawaiian's call their tuna: 'ahi.
This sandwich has been inspired by my visit to the Diamond Head Market & Grill in Waikiki, Oahu, Hawaii, in August 2007.
After climbing the 232 metre volcanic crater I had worked up quite an appetite, which I sated at this roadside eatery on the walk back to my hotel. Yummy!
Every time I grill this at home, it takes me back to paradise!
This sandwich is very simple to create, and has always attracted rave reviews when served to family and friends.

Step 1: Ingredients
Preparation Time: 10mins (Have everything ready prior to grilling)
Cooking Time: 5mins
Ingredients (Per Person):
100g TUNA Steak (see Note )
Olive/Canola/Cooking OIL (Spray cans are good)
Hamburger BUN, halved
Handful shredded LETTUCE
1/8 ONION, sliced, halved
1 teaspoon SOY SAUCE (SHOYU)
2 heaped teaspoon MAYONNAISE
WASABI to taste (see Note )
Note : Buy top quality Tuna steak if possible (sashimi quality is the best). It often comes in
2.5cm / 1" thick 200g steaks, so butterfly and then separate completely into individual
100g 1.25cm / 1/2" steaks.
Note : I buy wasabi (hot Japanese Horseradish sauce) in prepared tubes that I keep in the
refrigerator. Only a 1-2cm (3/8 - 3/4") squirt is sufficient per person.
