    SolightlyUK's Note:

    I pulled this off the web and it has become one my absolute favourite recipes. We have it at least once a month, sometimes more. Guests never fail to ask for the recipe. Note that prep time and cook time are approximations. It's a very quick and easy recipe.

      I love it! It was nice and fast and it tasted wonderful. The only thing I did different was use sesame oil instead of cooking oil to sear it.

      I thought this was an easy to prepare tuna and it tasted good. I agree with br2brown that if you use regular soy sauce, omit the 1/2 tsp of salt, as I too found it a bit too salty. This would make a good mid-week meal when you want something fast, with ingredients many people typically have on hand.
