Sweet and Spicy Glazed Tuna Steaks
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp ginger, minced
1/4 cup homemade teriyaki sauce
1/4 cup toasted sesame oil OR olive oil
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
2 wild-caught tuna steaks 1 1/2″ thick
Place Tuna steaks in a shallow baking dish or cast iron skillet. Mix all remaining ingredients and pour over the tuna. I usually reserve about 2 Tbsp of the sauce, and pour it on right before serving, or save it for dipping.
Bake uncovered at 400 degrees. 10 minutes for rare. 20 minutes for medium. 30 minutes for well done. We usually do about 17 ourselves….
The flavor of the sauce really penetrates the meat, so there is no marinating required. You could marinate it if you like, but I never have felt the need. This goes very well with a fresh green salad or steamed vegetables.
