"I love this recipe! I use about 2 bulbs of garlic with 2 tbsp of lemon juice and 3 tbsp of evoo. The extra garlic creates a nice crust."

"Absolutely WONDERFUL! I cooked the tuna on the grill and LOVED the flavor! The lemon adds just enough tartness to be distinguishable, but not too overpowering! EXCELLENT!!!"
