Substituted cayenne for wasabi, which we hate. Broiled for 3 minutes, turned over, then 3 minutes, made it medium, just a little pink. wish we had cooked it less, but flavor was great!

Wow - what a great & easy recipe to add to your books! I had to use regular vinegar (forgot the rice vinegar at the store) but I don't think it really mattered. DH LOVED this and ate more than half of the tuna. The Wasabi added just enough zip without overpowering at all. Served with brown/wild rice and fresh picked corn on the cob. Made this for the Cook-A-Thon for Lorac This would be a great marinade for tuna, salmon or shark steaks or kabobs. Thanks Lorac for another great recipe!! We WILL make this again!
