Out of the tuna recipes I've tried, this is my favorite. I add an Asian flair to tuna steaks with amazing results. For a bolder taste, marinate the tuna for 30 minutes. —Linda Murray, Allenstown, New Hampshire

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 tuna steaks (1 inch thick and 6 ounces each)

Directions

  1. In a large bowl of shallow dish, combine the first 6 ingredients. Add tuna and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  2. Drain tuna, discarding marinade. Place tuna on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Broil 3-4 in. from the heat until fish flakes easily with a fork, 3-5 minutes on each side .
