    Used different ingredients. This was the first time I had made tuna steaks - quite tasty! I couldn't find kumquats so I used a small orange, sliced with the peel, to top the steaks while they were cooking. With the fresh coriander, it smelled wonderful while it was cooking.  -  29 Sep 2008


    I will not use this recipe again. The coriander over powers the fish.  -  29 Sep 2008
