minced fresh ginger root
yellowfin tuna fillets
Glaze not needed. Ginger didn't work with the cilantro. Next time I omitted added a bit of dry mustard that works well with the lime and a pinch of chili flakes. This gave it a more of a SW flavor and served with black beans and an avocado salad. Very nice.
I didn't care for the marinade on these tuna steaks. The lime was a bit overpowering, and the cilantro with the tuna wasn't a very good match. I only marinated these for an hour and it was still too much.
I only marinaded this for an hour. I saved the marinade and added the honey -then I brought it to a boil. Basted the "glaze" onto the Tuna. Excellent flavor. Tip - strain the marinade if you want a smoother glaze.
I love this recipe. I like it better with lime, but will use lemon when I don't have lime. I prefer it with ground ginger, spreads the flavor better. I have baked it, fried it, and grilled it. It is the best grilled, but good the other ways as well. I have seen others post about the combination of flavors- I had my doubts and was surprised at how much I like the combo.
This was the tastiest fish dish I ever made! So easy and so delicious. I left over a small amount to bring to the girls at work to try. They all want the recipe. Even the on co-worker that does not care for cilantro, loved it! I will add this to my recipe box!
excellent dish! I have never enjoyed tuna steaks so much before! I don't know if the tuna I used was yellow fin, but it was delicious either way. I used powdered ginger because I did not have fresh on hand. I also used a george foreman grill after marinating about an hour without the honey, and then removed the fish, added honey and boiled the marinade (as suggested by another commenter)while the fish was cooking and drizzled it on the fish before serving! A side note -- I accidentally spilled some pineapple juice on the dish at the table and it was still great! If I have it on hand next time, I would think about adding about 2 table spoons of pineapple juice to the marinade (on purpose)!! ENJOY
Yummy! So summery. The key with Ahi is always don't overcook! I have made this a few times and always feel like I finish with a gourmet dinner with a few simple ingredients. Everyone loves it!
I was quite surprised at how much I enjoyed this. I have never been a big fan of fish...but I really liked the cilantro and lime flavors in this recipe. I recommend marinating tuna over night.

This tangy summer chicken has so much flavor (and so little fat).
