      We thought this was good but felt it needed a bit more orange juice and less was a bit thick. The sesame crust on the seared tuna was excellent. Will will be trying this one again! Thanks!

      Increadible! All of our guests could't believe how good this was. This is now my favourite TUNA! The crunchy outside and the yummy sauce were so delicious. I tried using butter instead of oil to sear some of the steaks and the ones with butter were better. I also used orange juice concentrate in the glaze. That worked well. Good luck with this amazing recipie!

      Wonderful! We enjoyed this immensely. Next time I make this (and there will be many next times) I'm going to use fresh squeezed orange juice - a little more orange flavor would be nice. I also served it with our favorite dipping sauce: about 1/2 C. soy sauce mixed with 2 - 3 tablespoons of Inglehoffer Wasabi Horseradish. Inglehoffer is the brand name and you can usually find it in the same section mustards are in at the grocery store. The one big difference was the cooking time. If you cooked it for a total of 10 minutes it would be well done - like tuna in the can. We like our tuna rare so sauteed it for only between 1 and 2 minutes per side.
