Ingredients: 4 tuna fillets, 6 oz. each
Marinade: 1/4 cup dry sherry
1/4 cup light soy sauce
2 Tbsp oyster sauce
2 Tbsp sesame oil
8 chives (green onions), chopped
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup finely minced fresh ginger
lemon wedges
Sauce: 2/3 cup dry white wine
