WOW!!!! That's some good tuna!!! Easy, quick and good!!! I didn't have any lemon zest so I just added a TBSP of lemon juice instead. Still incredible!

A friend of mine gave me some tuna. I tried the rub and I was not a fan of the cinnamon in it. I made a salad and chopped up the tuna using a squeeze of lime on it. I am sorry ABoston this was not for me.

Excellent. I would however decrease the salt to a half teaspoon.

Really good but cut the cooking time to about 20 seconds per side if you like it rare.

This recipe was great. Only changes were I just added a generous shake of cinnamon and added generous spoon of sesame seeds. Delicious!

I liked this. However next time I will certainly use less cinnamon, and would add soy sauce. Otherwise it was very good! Cant wait to try again

I didn't have any lemon or coriander on hand and did modify from olive oil to horseradish sauce. It was fantastic! The cinammon added just a perfect amount of sweetness to counteract the spicy.

GREAT recipe! I didn't have a lemon, so I used 1 tablespoon lemon juice instead. Turned out awesome!
