The tuna was excellent. I only did the tuna and not the asparagus. I did have to cook it longer because we like our tuna done a little more. The flavor was great and very easy to do. Served with Recipe #73574. It will be repeated many, many times.

Oh. My. God. This tasted like it came from a restaurant. DELICIOUS! This is going to become a regular dish. Where is the recipe for the rice? That sounds phenomenal!
