servings:Makes 30 pieces
total time:
40 min


  • Edamame Puree:
  • 1 lb Frozen soy beans
  • 1 tbs Wasabi
  • 1 tsp Sea salt
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 6 tbs Water
  • 2 tbs Canola oil
  • Marinated Tuna:
  • 0.5 cup Low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tbs Sake or white wine
  • 2 tbs Light brown sugar
  • 1 lb Tuna (sushi-grade)
  • Sesame Crackers


  • 1

    Blanch the soy beans in boiling salted water for 5 minutes. Drain, then pinch the beans out of their pods and put them in a food processor. Add the wasabi, salt, lemon juice, and water. Puree to break up the soy beans. Pour in the canola oil and puree until smooth. Refrigerate.

  • 2

    Whisk together the soy sauce, sake (or wine) and brown sugar until the sugar dissolves. Cube tuna. Arrange the tuna in a single layer in a shallow dish. Pour the marinade over the tuna, cover and refrigerate for 20 minutes.

  • 3

    Put a dollop of the edamame puree on a sesame cracker, then lay a slice of tuna on the top.


Don't marinate the tuna any longer because it will start to "cook" and the texture will be mushy.
