This was a nice marinade. The basting, while adding an extra step, really did impart more flavor, so I'm glad I didn't skip it. THANKS for the recipe!

Like previously mentioned way to much lemon, and 5 to 6 minutes cooking on each side is way to much. I would suggest cooking to medium rare, otherwise the tuna becomes tough.

Made this for my family and everybody thought it was excellent! Followed the recipe using tamari soy sauce. No left overs here.

I mostly followed the recipe using minor substitutes since I didn't have the exact ingredients (different oil, mustard, etc). We both thought it was really good. Will use again in the future.

I made this last night. Our friend went fishing and caught some yellowfin tuna. He gave some of it to my husband. I had no idea what to do with it, so I tried this recipe. As others mentioned, I...

Three minutes per side was perfect. Crispy outside, pink inside. Marinade was also good on rice.
