"These marinated tuna steaks, served rare, taste 'fancy' but are very easy to cook. Even my husband, who doesn't like most cooked fish, enjoys these steaks. A sprinkling of cracked black pepper is a good finisher for this dish."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I had to substitute balsamic vinegar for the soy sauce as I'm soy-intolerant, but this recipe turned out awesome! Quick, easy, great flavour.
Not my favorite. I have never made seared tuna before, but have really enjoyed the stuff I've had at restaurants. This recipe was not on par. I think it cooks the tuna for too long at too low a heat, so it ends up overcooked and tasting somewhat like canned tuna. We did not marinade the tuna for a whole 20 minutes (due to time constraints), but otherwise followed the recipe perfectly. I'm glad we didn't marinate it any longer, otherwise I think all we would have tasted is soy sauce. The marinade was very salty and really clung to the tuna steak. I would advise rinsing off the marinade thoroughly before cooking to avoid a too strong soy sauce flavor. Unfortunatly, I would actually just skip this recipe all together.
These were so moist and tender. Liked that they did not take long to sear. So very tasty!
My husband and I really enjoyed this, and he doesn't often care for seafood. It was really quick and all ingredients were on hand. If you are like me and prefer your tuna medium rare, cook as the recipe suggests. My husband likes it a bit more well-done, so we just put his back on the heat. (But keep in mind, if you let your tuna sit/rest 3 to 5 minutes off of the stovetop, it will continue to cook a bit more from its own internal heat. That way you can be assured that it won't get dry from overcooking, which is always a concern with seafood.) This recipe is a keeper. It's the second time I've made it this month.
Marinade was too sour. Maybe less lemon juice and some sugar would have improved this dish.
Dish was awesome!
Tried this as a last minute sunday treat and wow was I blown away! Sooo good!
Pretty, but just ok. The marinade was too tart.
