WINE PAIRING - Domaine Preignes Le Vieux 'Paradis' Rosé A delicious traditional French rosé from Grenache picked in the cool, early mornings to preserve that bright acidity. Behind the notes of cherry and strawberry, there is a backdrop of saltiness that accompanies the Asian flare of teriyaki to perfection. Lovely and refreshing!

1. Wash hands with soap and water.

2. Rinse fresh produce.

3. Mix 2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce with tuna, panko, egg, red pepper, scallion, ginger, salt and pepper. Shape a level 1/2 cup measure into patties and refrigerate for 15 minutes to firm up. Wash hands after handling raw tuna and egg.

4. Heat a nonstick skillet to medium heat. Brush the patties with a thin layer of oil and sear on both sides. Begin brushing the remaining 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce onto the patties and flip constantly for even cooking on both sides until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees Fahrenheit as verified with an instant-read food thermometer, about 5 to 10 minutes.

5. Spread a thin layer of wasabi sauce on bottom bun and stick a leaf of lettuce, followed by grilled pineapple then the tuna. Drizzle with more wasabi sauce and place top bun.
