What to eat with seared tuna?

I'm planning on making pan seared tuna with soy sauce and sesame oil tonight. What would you guys suggest as a side dish? I like to eat healthy.

Tuna is considered as "the steak of the sea." Any side that goes with steak, pretty much will be great with tuna. Baked Potato, Cremaed Spinach.... or get "original." It's all good.

I like brown rice with this type of dish - the soy sauce/sesame oil flavor is great with the rice. You can also saute some garlic and/or onions or scallions and add to the brown rice with a little soy sauce, etc. A steamed or sauteed green vegetable in addition would be good.

If you wanted to stick with the asian theme I would like any number of the following with a ponzu/rice wine/sesame oil vinagarette.A little chili sauce might work well in the dressing too.

Shitakes
mukamami (shelled edemame)
green onions
black sesame seeds
cilantro or thai basil.
red bell pepper slivers

Kathleen you are so strong. We had them with dinner tonite....my summer addiction has turned to fall. I'm adding grated carrot now, thinking any little bit of vitamins might make them legal. I noticed I'm seeing better.

PF, that recipe sounds great....I love wasabi. Can't wait to try it. Thanks.
