ISO Sauce/Seasonings for Tuna steak

Hi, I'd like to make a sauce for a tuna steak. I'm not super great at making sauces so I was wondering if anyone has any ideas?

Also, I am on the "D" word (diet) so I can't just make some kind of butter sauce, it has to be somewhat low calorie.

Seasoning ideas would be appreciated as well.

Thanks

Personally, I'd skip sauce on tuna steak.

I'd make sure it was seasoned well, either with salt and maybe some herbs, or teriyaki or ginger-miso or something, and then grill and go with it.

Tuna is so nice and meaty that it doesn't need a sauce. But that's MO.

Some sort of reduction spooned to the plate first would be nice. Balsamic, honey and cracked pepper. Maybe red wine and tad of dijon mustard. A soy or terriyaki glaze.

I would season then blacken one or two sides, sear and cook to a medium rare. Don't go crazy on the seasoning if your using a sauce or you could totally hide the tuna flavor.

I treat tuna much like I treat beef steak...season and grill. No Sauce.

Maybe a dill sauce would go well with tuna. Use light sour cream, dijon, lemon, and fresh dill, and a touch of black pepper.

Maybe try a wasabi mustard sauce - mix wasabi with some lemon or lime and a little white wine - it's incredible!

I am another who generally would go sauceless, but dkooks idea sounds really tasty.

Could always try an Asian sauce, maybe some ginger, soy (dark and or light or both), a touch of rice wine vinegar and some sugar, brown or white, or honey.
