“Great tasting and different twist on tuna steaks. This recipe came from the Low Fat Living cookbook, but i've modified it slightly. I've also made this marinade/sauce for swordfish & halibut. The sauce takes a while to prepare, but it is definitely worth it. Try serving with a brown & wild rice mix and fresh asparagus.”
