Fresh Tuna Steaks With Hoisin Ginger Marinade

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Abby Girl

We were introduced to fresh tuna, at this little fish store in Hawaii many years ago. The marinade that was used was so incredible that I had to try and re-create it at home. I think I came in pretty close. Most restaurants grill their tuna for 3-4 minutes per side, but I tend to like mine rare, so I only cook each side for 1-1/2 minute. Tuna must be as fresh as possible

Perfect marinade for Tuna. I cooked these on a charcoal grill and they were wonderful. Thank you Abby Girl for sharing this recipe.
