"Husband is not to keen on coriander, but my son and I love it, my husband ate it and said not bad, will make it again but will not put as much coriander in for hubbys sake"

"I used a different mango salsa recipe because I didn't have the carrots and am not a huge fan of coriander or cumin. However, I loved the simple salt and pepper on the tuna that allowed for the real flavor of the tuna to shine. We grilled it for barely 4 minutes on each side so that the middle was warm yet still pink. It was so yummy, I am making it again tonight for company!"

"I made some personal adjustments to the dish since I don't like coriander or cumin. I added chopped serrano pepper to the salsa. The tuna steaks I marinated in olive oil, pressed garlic, black pepper, salt and balsamic vinegar before broiling, added a tablespoon of Kikkoman teriyaki sauce before broiling. The salsa was great and the tuna tender and tasty just loved it."
