This marinade works equally well with bluefish, salmon, or mackerel. For a real change of pace, try the marinade on skinless, boneless chicken breasts.
1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
1 teaspoon minced ginger
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 tuna steaks (10 ounces each)
1. In a shallow bowl, stir together the soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger, garlic, and lemon juice. Place the tuna in the marinade and refrigerate for 1 hour, turning the tuna over midway.
2. Preheat the broiler. Lift the tuna from the marinade and place on a broiler pan. Spoon half the marinade over the tuna. Broil the tuna 4 to 6 inches from the heat for 3 minutes. Pour the remaining marinade over the tuna and broil until the tuna is medium-rare (cooked through but still slightly pink in the center), about 2 minutes.
3. Cut the tuna steaks in half for a total of 4 serving pieces. Makes 4 servings
