Got thumbs up on the tuna

For the past 18 years I have been trying to convince the wife that the fish family is made up of more fish than just fried cod.. She approved of the cod and tilapia I had cooked on the egg.
Tonight I followed a recipe from here for oriental grilled tuna. To me is masked the flavor of the tuna, but she loved it :woohoo:.
Served it on a bed of wild rice, oriental green beans and a wasabi sour cream sauce.

This was the tuna after 1 hour in the marinade

Her plate

Mine :blush: . Recipe called for 3 minutes each side. Next time I will go 2 and skip the marinade on mine.
Looks like fish will be on the weekly menu!

    Looks great, wish I could get decent tuna in the upper midwest. ;)
    I raise my kids, cook and golf.  When work gets in the way I'm pissed, I'm pissed off 48 weeks a year.

    Thanks Tim. I got over the mushroom and asparagus issue and she is getting over the fish thing.

    Scott. The tuna came fram SAMs. Defrost it the way the package says and it is great. I usually use shakin the tree for seasoning when I am cooking for 1

    Don't give up. My wife probably would never go for a strong fish like salmon, but a light fish with good flavor she is starting to like.
    Its kind of like the process I had to go thru to get her to enjoy mowing the steps :whistle:

    Richard I'm like Steven but, I put Cindy on my Dixie Chopper so I can go trim and get done sooner and is like she can't wait to get off. I will say she loves to push mow. ;) I'll keep trying. ;)
