      Yummmm! Great flavor on these tuna steaks - wish I would have cooked them a little less than specified as they were nearly well done which is not how I like my tuna. Easy and tasty!

      Fantastic! Even my young grandsons loved it! I got a super buy on individually frozen tuna steaks, so I'll be making these a couple of times in the next few weeks. Thanks!

      Very easy, very good. I also ,as another reviewer, cooked the tuna on my grill pan. Made the sauve in a separate skillet and briefly cooked the tuna in it.
