1 1/2 pounds tuna steaks, cut at least 1 1/2 inches think

1 (12-ounce) package frozen, shelled edamame, thawed
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons chopped pickled (sushi) ginger


Heat the oil in a large, deep skillet or Dutch oven over high heat. Season the tuna with salt and pepper and brown quickly on both sides in the hot oil (no more than 2 minutes per side). Remove from the pan and set aside.

Reduce the heat to medium, add the onion and celery to the pan, and sauté until barely tender, about 5 minutes. Add the five-spice powder and broth, and heat until simmering. Stir in the edamame, and return the tuna to the pan. Simmer until the edamame are tender, 3 to 4 minutes.

Transfer the tuna to a cutting board. Add the soy sauce and vinegar to the edamame and transfer to a serving platter with a slotted spoon. Slice the tuna against its grain and arrange the slices over the edamame spoon the broth over the top and garnish with the chopped pickled ginger.
