    Used different ingredients. I substituted rice vinegar and sherry for rice wine vinegar and it added a great flavour!  -  24 Jul 2008


    Used different ingredients. absoultely perfect tuna! it was so tender and flaky - the marinade definitely did the trick, although i added a touch of lime juice.  -  24 Jul 2008
