Since I was only grilling three small pieces of Tuna and quickly I decided to do it on the indoor grill. Super easy other than having to clean the pan!
It had a great fresh flavor and the addition of the avocados was a pleasant combination. We will definitely make this again since I now own a canister of wasabi powder!!

Brush the tuna steaks with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place the tuna steaks in a very hot saute pan and cook for only 1 minute on each side. Set aside on a platter.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the olive oil, salt, pepper, lime zest, wasabi, lime juice, soy sauce and hot sauce. Add the avocados to the vinaigrette.
