Filet Mignon, Nori Crust, Wasabi Butter

Nori Crusted Filet Mignon over a Lemon Mirin Soy Sauce 
Topped with Wasabi Butter

As a nibble...on grilled ciabatta bread.

8 oz. Filet Mignon
Nori (roasted seaweed) is ground with white sesame seeds, red chile flakes, and black pepper in a food processor.
Two 8 oz. filets are seasoned, then dredged in the nori mixture and seared in olive oil for about 4 minutes per side. The meat is finished in a 400 degree oven.

Olive oil, mirin, tamari, and fresh lemon juice are whisked together for a sauce. Fresh lemon juice and steak - this is an amazing pairing.

For a large group, a 2 1/2 pound filet is cut in half.

A remote thermometer is helpful, we removed the meat from the oven at 128, and then let rest for 10 minutes.
I have made this Japanese Style Steak three times now. I cannot rave enough about the combination of flavors which are extraordinary. You can find this fabulous recipe here by DFresh on Foodbuzz which was inspired by a dish in Food & Wine Magazine.
