This was good. Nice fresh taste to it, will make again. - 29 Sep 2008


Very good, my fault, cooked the tuna a little too long, but I like it rare to medium rare. Will try again. - 29 Sep 2008


I didn't care for the marinade on these tuna steaks. The lime was a bit overpowering, and the coriander with the tuna wasn't a very good match. I only marinated these for an hour and it was still too much. - 29 Sep 2008
