    PaulaG's Note:

    This is a recipe that I found at another web site and adapted to suit our taste. This has a little bit of a kick. Serve this with jasmine rice to soak up the wonderful glaze!

      Very good and different fish recipe! This is the first time I ever had fresh tuna and was pleasantly surprised at how much different it tastes like the usual canned tunafish we are all too familiar with. However I wasn't able to get fresh tuna so used frozen tuna steaks (thawed) which I think were a bit thinner than the recipe indicated and also used canned pineapple (using the juice in the can). Besides that I followed the directions pretty much to the letter, allowing for the thinner fish and skipping the star anise (which I wasn't able to find). Next time I may cut down on the spices just a tad, but otherwise very enjoyable fish which we served wiht Asian Noodle Salad Asian Noodle Salad and Custard With Kiwi Custard With Kiwi for dessert. for dessert. Perfect for a hot summer evening meal -- a filling delicious meal without turning the oven on. Thanks for sharing!
