On each side of the steaks, add salt, pepper and sprinkle with flaxseed. Cook tuna 2 minutes on each side in a hot pan with olive oil. Cut steak into large cubes, meat should be pink, place the cubes on the plates.

Place the wasabi cream in the center of the plate or on the tuna (or like me in syringes). It will make your guests talk about the meal!!!
