I love an easy recipe. I do not have a lot of time during the week to spend working on meals. That is why this is such a great recipe. This is also a great Lent recipe; just use whole tuna.
It only requires an hour of marinade time for this to be flavorful and moist. You can’t beat that. I love to marinate with soy; it is so flavorful and versatile.
Why not cook this outside and keep clean up to a minimum. Not to mention that grilling imparts a wonderful flavor to everything you cook.
This is a great way to enjoy almost any firm flesh type of fish.
