    AcadiaTwo's Note:

    Our family was first introduced to the concept of "rare" Ahi Tuna when my sister-inlaw opened an inland NJ seafood restaurant. Frequently, she tested new recipes on us as well as her family & friends. The first time I tasted it, I was surprised to find out how good the rare tuna was! I then decided to create my own marinade that was more to our liking. The trick is to just sear the fish on a hot frying pan for 1-2 minutes per side and then serve immediately.

      I cut the teriyaki sauce down to 3/4 cup and added 3 crushed garllic and grilled the tuna instead of searing it! I had enought tuna to feed 8 people. It was a bit on the salty side....but overall, a good finish. I would do this one again

      I marinated our tuna steaks, then made on the grill. Tender and full pink in the middle, there is no other way to make it! The sauce and garlic were a great marinade and one I will use again. I may play around with it a bit and try a few things, but this is basically a good starting point for this marinade!
