I love fresh tuna and always order it when we eat out, although it is pricey. This was my first try at cooking it at home and I LOVED THIS RECIPE!!!!! Very easy and tasty. My husband thought it was a little heavy on the soy sauce (too salty), but I thought it was absolutely great. Thank you for a wonderful recipe
