this is really good. i was worried that the OJ would make it too sweet for my taste, but it cooked right off. perfect punch of vinegary bite and peppery heartiness. i only had two tuna steaks, but i still made the amount of sauce called for in the recipe (i like lots), so you may want to double the sauce for four steaks. sprinkle with some fresh lemon. nice.

This was SO good and easy. I'm a pepper lover so I went a bit heavier on it than the recipe says. This is a real keeper, thanks.

This is fantastic! I am not very expierenced at cooking seafood so I really appreciated the easy preperation. Salt and pepper those steaks really well. I did not use enough and had to add after I was done cooking. The sauce for this is really good too. The balsalmic vinegar with orange juice sounds strange, but tastes GOOD!

Dancer^, this was a marvelous way to cook tuna steaks. It was easy too, which always excites me. Amber Anaya made a good point in that you need to salt and pepper the steaks very well before cooking. The sauce was very lively in flavor and a great compliment to the tuna. Thanks a bunch.

Sorry, but I wasn`t really a fan of this dish. To me, it was just ok. The sauce tasted just as it sounds - nothing really special. I think the dish needed a sauce with more depth.

What a wonderful and fast dinner this turned out to be. I used salt and Trader Joe's 21 Seasoning Salute on tuna (and SO glad I did as the onion flakes in the seasoning were amazing in the end product). I used some aged balsamic and fresh squeezed organic orange juice. Loved it and will certainly make it again. Served with a side of green peas which went well with the sauce too. Thanks so much for posting!

Gosh, I wish all recipes were this simple and fast, but still tasted good. Unfortunately, we were out of OJ, but I had some mango juice and added some powder sugar to thicken it up. I'm going to be putting that glaze on more than just tuna steaks! Thank you so much.
