    Overall, I thought it was very good, but a little salty. Next time, I'll use low-sodium soy sauce. Also, I prefer my tuna fully cooked and this recipe was good for that. Very good though! 
    Thanks! :
    I cooking it right now; comment from Ft. Collins, CO was very helpful. 
    Tasty recipe and easy to make.
    Outstanding raves by my guests. Used 1/4 cup soy, added 1/4 teaspoon sesame oil.
    did not have the Worcestershire. Grilled on a very hot pan with raised grill identations. covered with lid and did two minutes on each side. Tuna was 1 1/2 inch thick.Next time i will dip the fish in a plate of toated sesame seeds prior to frying.
    Made it in a minute and marinated the tuna like it said. It was not too salty at all! It was amazing. Definitely do this!
    Super Easy, as well as Super Delish!!!! Love Love Love this Recipe!!!
    This recipe is so easy and the tuna comes out perfect. My husband thought I had gotten it at a restaurant it was that good. I cooked it just a little longer than it said, I don't like it rare; but it is the perfect easy recipe.
    Don't let this sauce ruin a nice piece of fish! I used a GOOD soy sauce that was low sodium and it was way too salty. I did boil the sauce and I did add 2 T of apricot preserves but, again, too salty. Just grill that fish up with nothing and sqeeze lemon on it. A good piece of Tuna doesn't need this added flavor.
    Great recipe for beginners or if you're just short on time due to last minute changes or if you're just too tired and you hate fast food.
    I'm not a big fish person but this was great. I suggest making the sauce from the left over marinade as someone else suggested but use low sodium soy sauce and keep the sauce on the side instead of pouring it over the fish as it is fairly salty. The fish was out of this world. My wife and I prefer our fish a little more on the done side so we cooked if for about 3-4 minutes a side.
    So easy, so simple, so good!
    I layed the steaks in sesame seeds and they were great.
    I needed a recipe fast for a beautiful piece of fresh tuna. This recipe was fabulous! In the reviews someone thought it was too salty. I used low salt soy sauce and it was perfect. I also boiled the left over marinade and then added cornstarch mixed in water to make a sauce....delicious!
    My family and friends raved about it!
    I will definitely make this again. Even eating the left overs cold was really good.
    This was delicious! The marinade keeps the fish very tender and juicy.
    The dish was great. I didn't have the opportunity to actually grill it. Nor did I have any Ginger. But all in all, the recipe gave me a great idea how to prepare Ahi Tuna for my very first time.
    This marinade is wonderful. It enhances rather than overpowers the tuna. Will use this again.
    This marinade was fine, nothing special. I felt it was lacking something.
    I would use less soy and oil next time, and add some honey to sweeten it up. Otherwise, it was good.
    This is an excellent recipe for basic BBQ. I tripled the recipe, cooked 2/3 of it down and served the BBQ fish with the sauce over the top. another option is to do the same thing, only add a can of crushed pineapple to the mix.
    This recipe was excelent. Simpley mix marinade,soak the meat(i only did this for about 20 min)and sear. And you have a great tasting ahi dinner.
