Source: The Martha Stewart Show, Episode 2095


  • 1 tablespoon unseasoned rice-wine vinegar
  • Pinch of sugar
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound sushi-grade tuna, very finely chopped
  • 2 scallions, white and light green parts only, trimmed and minced
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • Canola oil, for cooking
  • 1/2 bunch arugula
  • Wasabi Mayonnaise


  1. Place vinegar and sugar in small bowl. Slowly whisk in 2 tablespoons olive oil to form an emulsion; season with salt and pepper; set aside.

  2. Place tuna, scallions, soy, 2 tablespoons olive oil, sesame oil, and lemon zest in a large bowl; season with salt and pepper. Mix well, using your hands, to combine. Divide tuna mixture into six equal portions and form each portion into a 1/2-inch thick patty.

  3. Place a large nonstick skillet over medium heat and add enough canola oil to coat bottom of skillet. Add patties, and cook until medium-rare, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

  4. Place arugula in a large bowl, drizzle with reserved dressing, and toss to combine. Divide arugula evenly between 6 plates. Place one patty on each bed of arugula; serve immediately with wasabi mayonnaise.
