Very good! Added a little extra Jalapeño to the Salsa. I did slightly crust both sides of the tuna so mine was very spicy. I didn't mind but I would cut back on the heat a little on the tuna next time. The salsa is a keeper

Really simple marinade for the tuna, but super tasty and complimentary to the fish. I would recommend just making sure that your tuna steaks are nice and thick, otherwise the cooking time won't be long enough to form the crush into a crust. Will be making again for sure.
