Deep fried tuna bites

For a nice presentation,serve this on finely grated daikon radish on top of a lettuce leaf.

Yellowfin or other tuna cut into 1 inch cubes
1/2 c Japanese soy sauce (Kikkoman is excellent)
1 tsp wasabi powder
1/2 tsp honey
potato starch, corn starch, or arrowroot starch
Oil for deep frying

Dissolve the wasabi in the soy sauce and brush on the tuna, refrigerate for 1/2 hour. Mix the remaining soy/wasabi with the honey – this will be your dipping sauce. Heat oil to 375 degrees. Roll the tuna chunks in the starch, shake off excess, fry for a bare 20-30 seconds – you want the outside crisp and the inside still rare.
