Wing Yip’s Bank Holiday Barbecue Feast

Seared Tuna Steak with a Peking Sauce Glaze

In this recipe tuna steak is glazed with two Wing Yip sauces resulting in a harmony of yin and yang flavours. Extra sauce can be used as dips for prawn crackers and carrot sticks. To make up a Hoisin dipping sauce, mix a tablespoon with a little hot water, chopped spring onions and sesame seeds. The plum sauce can be used straight from the jar as a dip or mixed with light olive oil to make a light Oriental dressing.

• 1 tuna steak
• 1 tbsp Wing Yip Plum Sauce
• 1 heaped tsp Wing Yip Hoisin Sauce
• 1 tsp Wing Yip Light Soy Sauce

• Mix the Hoisin and Plum sauces together.
• Season the tuna steaks with light soya sauce.
• Place tuna steaks on a hot barbecue to sear.
• Carefully turn over and brush the tuna steaks with a little Peking Sauce mixture.
• Turn the tuna steak over and brush the other side.
• Cooking times would be dependent on the thickness of the tuna steaks and how rare they are to be served.
• Remove the tuna steaks from the heat and pour over the remaining Peking Sauce mixture before serving.
• Serve immediately with a light salad.
