Outstanding an excellent fresh tasty salad. Use a combination of red orange and yellow tomatoes for a visually stunning presentation. The combination of fresh cilantro basil green onion chilis and tomato makes for a fresh vibrant look and taste. Sear the tuna in a very hot skillet or wok and turn with tongs to sear both sides for maximum flaor. Read More

The fish turned out very well we really enjoyed the marinade. The cilantro was a bit overwhelming in this one. Read More

My tip: drain the sauce before searing and pat dry tuna with paper towel to aid searing. Add 2 TSP of corn starch to sauce and reapply sauce to tuna after searing. Read More

THIS is a recipe that you will cook over and over again- basic but with flair and loads of flavor. What a crisp zingy change from bland American canned tuna salad. The seasonings are just right and guests loved this dish and have asked me for the recipe. Try it! Read More

I added additional lime juice and zest to counter the fishiness.I also added chopped lemon grass and dried pepper flakes for some additional heat. Outcome was excellent. Read More
