Quick and healthy recipe for tuna. Add more wasabi and/or ginger to make it spicier. We like it a lot hotter, but this version is more universal. If you're not dieting, serve on a bed of jasmine rice. If you are, serve with some mixed vegetables topped with salt and a splash of soy sauce.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Spoon 1 tablespoon soy sauce over fish and let stand 5 minutes.
  2. Combine the remaining 1 tablespoon soy sauce, ginger, and 2 teaspoons wasabi paste in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk.

  4. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add fish to pan; cook 2 minutes on each side.
  5. Spoon marmalade mixture over tuna.
  6. Cook 1 minute or to desired wellness (recommend rare as best, medium-rare at maximum).
  7. Remove tuna from pan.

This was DELICIOUS. My first time eating tuna steak, or any rare fish for that matter. I really liked it. The glaze didn't seem overkill to the tuna itself. One more thing, I didn't really know what ginger marmalade was...so I just mixed some ginger puree with some sugar free marmalade, lol! Thank you very much for posting this recipe.
