    Though I had never made tuna steaks before, I was inspired by such fresh looking cuts at my local co-op. I wanted a grilled recipe that was quick and easy to prepare, and this recipe delivered. The flavor of the tuna was fantastic! My entire family loved the tuna and the sauce, though there was something a bit off-putting about the sauce for me. But I also added more cornstarch than called for, so That may have been part of my issue. I will absolutely make this dish again, though next time I will likely try a few adjustments when converting the marinade to a sauce.

    I made this with swordfish steaks, which my husband found too stringy, though he liked the flavor. Next time I will make as written. Splendid for so little effort!

    pretty good. even with low sodium soy sauce, the sauce is salty. served it with black forbidden rice and roasted green beans.

    Turned out great! Loved the marinade turned sauce. I’ll make a little extra next time to toss my veggies in.

    It turns out fine. Pretty easy to make. The sauce should not boil though. The time in the girl was perfect.
