Reviews for Tasty Tuna Steaks
"Really good marinade, the fish turned out great."
"I made this and the steaks were great plus my husband really liked the marinade."
"I've found with fish, the simple recipes are my favorite. I loved the simplicity of this recipe. Sadly, I didn't have fresh ginger so I used ground ginger. Can't wait to try this with fresh ginger. This was the first time I've tried making tuna steaks at home and it turned out great."
"The marinade was fantastic, the tuna had such great flavor! We loved this dish! It will definitely be made again!"
"My husband said this was his favorite of all the tuna recipes I've tried thus far!"
"Very Tasty, "A keeper" my husband said. I used the beef broth, ginger and garlic in from the deli in a jar which made it fast and easy. Will make again."
