We love tuna steaks, they’re quick, delicious, and healthy! Usually we just season them up and throw them on a grill pan. This time I decided to marinate. They came out good. The flavor for marinating was very subtle though. I served them with some corn on the cob and noodles from Costco.

2 tuna steaks
2 TBSP soy sauce
2 TBSP honey
1 TBSP lime juice (about half a lime)
1 TBSP rice vinegar
1 TBSP freshly grated ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. wasabi paste
1/8th-1/4 tsp. sriracha
1 TBSP toasted sesame oil
In a bowl, combine all ingredients to make a marinade. Place the tuna steak(s) into a large zip-top bag and pour the marinade over top. Squeeze out as much of the air as you can, seal, and let sit in the fridge for at least 30 minutes and up to a few hours.
Heat a heavy bottom skillet over medium-high.
Add the tuna to the pan, and let cook for about 2 minutes – do not stir or move the tuna around. Flip, and let cook for another 1.5 – 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
