This is a delicious and healthy meal. I serve it with mango salsa and rice. It is a great meal for the warm months, but it can also be broiled in the winter.

It had a great flavor and complimented the tuna very nicely. We only wished it had a slightly stronger citrus taste. A solution might be to add some orange rind and maybe not use as much basil and oregano- maybe 3/4 t instead of 1 t each. Overall it had a wonderful flavor! Read More

First time making tuna steaks I thought that the marinade was pretty good although next time I'll probably let it sit overnight since I could only really taste the citrus flavor along the edges of the steak. I used a foreman grill and served with couscous & corn. Read More

This recipe is easy quick and tastes great! I wanted a new way to grill tuna and Man this is now going to be the recipe I go to first. I served it with rice and fresh green beans delicious. Read More

Called for a little too much oil. It's also very tasty if you slice fresh mango and heat it lightly in the same pan. Oh lala!! Read More

I actually made this with salmon because it's what we had and baked it instead of using the grill. It was amazing! Word to the wise... marinate the fish for several hours. =) Read More

I am really picky with fish and this was really good. Hubby wanted to fix his own tuna (not using this recipe) so I fixed my tuna steak this way. He tried a piece of my tuna and said it was MUCH BETTER than the way he cooked his! He asked me to save this recipe so I could fix this again! I did not grill (too cold outside) but broiled it instead. YUMMY! Read More

I found this to be tasteless even after letting sit for an hour. My beautiful tuna steaks were very dry. No one ate more than 1/2 their steaks. I made Barbie's Tuna Salad out of the leftovers. That was good! Read More

Probably this recip would have been fine. However I purchased previously frozen tuna steaks and they lacked the flavour and texture of fresh. My supermarket informed me that because of the overfishing problem with tuna we should expect to see previously frozen tuna more often...I am very sad because I love fresh tuna...this tuna was blah.
