Dinner part two – Grilled Yellow Fin Tuna in Sweet Soy Garlic Ginger Sauce

I made the Mango and roasted corn salad last night which was so fresh and wonderful tasting and made some Yellow Fin Tuna to go with it.  The Tuna turned out pretty great but my husband, Grantley, was not a fan.  He does not like anything that has a pink middle.  It has to be cooked to the death.  I refuse to cook Sushi-Grade fish all the way through because then you might as well eat it out of a can.  So we compromised and I made him another protein to eat with his salad.  But I thoroughly enjoyed my fish.  I thought you might like it too.

Whisk up the dressing and marinate the fish

Grill on a medium high grill to get a nice sear

Serve over a refreshing salad

Dinner was delicious!

Here’s the recipe:

Grilled Yellow Fin Tuna in Sweet Soy Garlic Ginger Sauce

2 pieces of sushi-grade Yellow Fin Tuna (about 3 ounces each)

1 tablespoon Sweet Soy Sauce (Kecap Manis, see Nasi Goreng recipe for pictures and explanation)

1 clove of garlic, finely minced

1/2 inch of fresh ginger grated

1/2 tsp Shiracha Chili sauce

Whisk all the sauce ingredients together and marinate the fish for about 30 minutes to 1 hour in the fridge.  Heat a grill to medium high heat and cook 2-3 minutes on each side, until nicely seared.  Serve with Mango and roasted corn salad
