Seared tuna
Pan seared tuna rolled in a blend of poppy & sesame seeds served over fire grilled asparagus and our ginger soy sauce drizzled over top.  Garnished w crisp bean sprouts & wasabi smashed red skin potatoes.

In a food processor pulse the butter until creamed .  Add the remaining ingredients and blend until all is creamed together (approx 2-3 minutes)
