A lot of flavor and easy to make. A lot of sauce and I cut this in half already. Next time I'll only make a fourth of this sauce. Adding this to my list of must haves!

This was a very good recipe. I didn´t make the sauce. But I did serve it with avocado slices.

Excellent and easy recipe. I ended up grilling them instead of pan searing. I'll definitely keep this recipe in my bag of favorites.

I liked this recipe a lot - the marinade was delicious and the sesame seeds added a great crunch. My only complaint is that the "sauce" portion of the recipe made an absolute TON of sauce - enough for easily 10 times the amount of tuna we made. Can you change the sauce to be more proportionate to the tuna?

Barely sear on both sides. Should leave very rare in middle. [I posted this recipe.]
