"My father used to catch albacore and our Korean neighbor, Sun, gave us this fantastic recipe. My parents would marinate the fish and then broil or barbecue it."

I made this for Valentine's and it was excellent. I used it with Ahi Tuna and broiled for 8-10 min on each side and it turned out perfect. We really enjoyed this.
This was the first time that I had ever made tuna. I did not have any ginger, and I used a bit less Splenda instead of sugar, and it was still very good. Thank you for the recipe. I will make again!!
The flavor of this is fantastic! I cooked the remaining marinade to use as a sauce when the fish came off the grill. I was amazed that the amount of sugar used did not make the sauce overly sweet at all. Outstanding!
this was the best tuna my wife and I have eaten.
Instead of using this recipe as a marinade, I used it as a dipping sauce. We bought some fresh yellowfin tuna from the fish market and grilled it until just seared on the outside (still rare inside - - the only way to eat fresh tuna!) Followed the recipe except I mixed wasabi paste in mine for a kick!
the flavor is just amazing in this marinade. it makes me want to eat tuna for EVERY meal. just perfect!
I cut the sugar back to about half a tbsp, and that was plenty sweet enough for us. This was absolutely the best tuna marinade I have ever tasted. Really outstanding. I cooked the tuna on the Foreman grill, and it was perfect. Thanks so much!
Used this as a sauce on top of yellowfin tuna. It was delicious. I didn't marinade it and I did add just a tablespoon of brown sugar and a splash of orange juice. I also grated the ginger so I wouldn't have big pieces of it. Thickened it in a pan while the tuna was seared and it was great. Thanks for a great idea.
