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!

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 was an awesome seasoning. I didn't have any lemon zest so I used lemon pepper and it turned out great! Next time I will make sure I have lemon zest!

Love the flavor

This was so much better than the standard ahi recipe!

Made it just as it says and it was a winner
