We're always looking for great tuna recipes. This one is amazing. Even if this is your first time cooking tuna steaks you'll enjoy the flavors and aromas. With the fresh cilantro, this smells great while it is cooking. This recipe is at the top of the list for taste. The tuna will be moist and flavorful. If you are sensitive to cilantro, use about half of what's called for and add a pinch of Tarragon. Leftovers are amazing. The steaks are even better the next day as they absorb all the flavors while staying moist. Enjoy!
