This is a combination of two fabulous marinades. My kids absolutely love it and ask for me to make it all the time! And, just by using a gluten-free soy sauce, the entire recipe is gluten free! Serve with wasabi paste and rice.

I was planning on salt, pepper and searing the tuna I bought, but I decided to look for a recipe here instead. This was a great one. The tuna turned out great -- very tasty and savory. This is a keeper1

Delicious! I made extra marinade and used it as a dressing with a lettuce and arugula salad
