I doubled the recipe the first time I made it as an appetizer and it got rave reviews and requests for the recipe.

Best tuna I've ever made. Used Albacore from Costco, but will try Ahi next time.

These were absolutely fantastic! We made a special ginger teriyaki mayo by mixing a ginger teriyaki marinating sauce with regular mayo. The flavors in this recipe are absolutely divine and we WILL ba making this again!
