"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.
nope, I haven't tried it, yet. I can already see that it's tremendous. I've watched enough television cooking programs to know when a recipe is a winner. I've been buying nice sized Tuna "nuggets" about every week from my local fresh fish vendor and have looked for something EXACTLY like this!
I loved it... Subsituted lemon for kalamansi and molasses for honey ...
