Tried this last night.I had bluefin tuna right off the fishing boat.Wasn't sure if I would like this marinade,but am really glad I tried it. It came out great.I did however make two small changes,I used crushed pineapple,because I didn't have preserves ,and because I don't like sesame oil,used regular olive oil.It was grilled to just rare and served over a salad with a light lime vinaigrette.I am sure this recipe will stay in my recipe box and used regularly.
Did not care for this at all. The hoisin sauce really didn't combine well with the other ingredients. Maybe leaving that out would work, but will not make this again.
Great! I used apricot-pineapple preserves bc that's what I had. The marinade is awesome - I used about 2/3 of it to marinate and saved 1/3 to glaze the fish after cooking. Also added a little chili oil, since we like heat - but the flavor is perfect as is. Thanks!
This is the only way I make tuna steaks! excellent recipe, and I've even managed to impress people with it. even good in the middle of winter cooked on a frying pan instead of a grill. fantastic.
Probably one of the best pieces of marinated fish I've ever enjoyed! Tender, flaky and very tasty. I think it would also make a wonderful marinade for chicken or pork. I'll have to try it sometime.
This is a tasty,easy recipe!I used apricot preserves because that is what I had on hand.I had never heard of hoisen sauce,but that was easily found in my grocery store's ethnic food aisle.My husband really loves this recipe and my 16 y/o daughter, who is almost a strictly chicken and pasta eater,gave it the thumbs up!My other kids(19 & 13) ate it also, no complaints.We've made this twice. I think the first time we(I should say my hubby, he's the "grillmaster")overcooked it.The second time we kept a closer eye on the timing and it turned out perfect!We'll continue to use this recipe.
I made these for my family and they loved them. I topped each with a pineapple mango salsa which sent the flavor through the roof! They were so loved that I also made them for my father's birthday dinner and they were also a huge success
this was a recreation of what we paid $26/per plate at a fancy resteraunt! (at home cost $6 pp) Awesome! Served with steamed asperagus & wild rice. Yum!!
