  1. To prepare marinade, combine preserves, hoisin, lime juice, cilantro, ginger, and sesame oil in a small bowl. Stir well.
  2. Pour into a resealable plastic bag or glass bowl; toss tuna with marinade to coat. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil grate.
  4. Remove tuna steaks from marinade, shake off excess, and discard remaining marinade. Cook on preheated grill for 4 to 5 minutes per side. Be careful not to overcook - the tuna should be lightly browned on the outside but still slightly pink in the middle. Serve immediately.

Did not care for this at all. The hoisin sauce really didn't combine well with the other ingredients. Maybe leaving that out would work, but will not make this again.

this was a recreation of what we paid $26/per plate at a fancy resteraunt! (at home cost $6 pp) Awesome! Served with steamed asperagus & wild rice. Yum!!

Husband and I loved this recipe. Flavorful and super easy. Will make again.
