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! Read More

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. Read More

I was looking for a recipe for yellowfin tuna and this one had great reviews. But when I looked at the ingredient list, based on my past experience, this type of flavour on fish wasn't my cup of tea. I couldn't find anything else and my family thought it sounded good so I made it. The only thing I did differently was to use olive oil since I didn't have vegetable oil. And it only sat in the marinade for about 10 minutes because that's all the time I had. I was completely blown away. This TOTALLY works on tuna. In fact it was perfection. Can't wait to make this again. Definitely a keeper! Read More

I tasted and loved this recipe, as is, and our tuna steaks were excellent. I added for personal taste, brown sugar and the juice of one orange. Saved half the marinade for a dipping sauce once I broiled the steaks. Also, only used 1/3 of cup of oil. I usually cut oils down just to cut calories. Read More

The recipe was absolutely wonderful. I followed the ingredients exactly. I forgot to prick the steaks with the fork but it didn't seem to affect the juiciness of the fish. I marinaded it for a little over three hours which didn't seem like it was a problem. I did not grill the fish. i only had 2 6-ounce steaks and hated lighting up the entire grill just for that. I oiled a cast iron skillet and heated it to medium and then still followed the grilling recipe. Read More

Wonderful marinade!! Definitely a keeper and I will now use this again and again. I did not have dijon mustard so I used regular mustard with some horseradish. I added some ginger as well. It was a big hit in this house. Read More

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. Read More

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 basted the fish while it was on the grill. He LOVED it! When my husband tries something new he usually says "it's ok ". I'm a vegetarian so I didn't try it. This time he RAVED! He even had me print the recipe so he could give a copy to his fisherman friend. I am going to try this marinade with sushi grade Ahi & give it a quick sear. Read More
