"A flavorful fish with a tangy sweet sauce"
2 cups of 100% orange juice
3 tbsp soy sauce
1tsp cayenne pepper
2 whole garlic cloves - minced
4 - 4oz. tuna steaks
2 cups of cooked rice - whatever type you prefer
left over marinade
2 tbsp brown sugar
1/4 cup 100% orange frozen concentrate
2 tbsp rice vinegar
1 tsp cayenne pepper
First, smash your garlic cloves with your knife by laying the knife flat on it's side, on top of the garlic cloves, and apply enough pressure to smash them. Then you can easily remove the skin and finely mince them. Now for your marinade. It's best to marinate your fish a day in advance, but three or four hours should be sufficient if you don't want to wait. In a large zip-lock freezer bag, add your four tuna steaks, two cups of orange juice, 3 tbsp of soy sauce, 1 tsp of cayenne pepper and your minced garlic. Refrigerate over night.
O.k.. Now you're ready to grill your tuna steaks. It doesn't really matter how you grill them. Some people prefer smoked, some like propane, others use charcoal or briquettes. Some people eat their tuna steaks mid-rare to medium, others won't touch it if it's not well done. It doesn't really matter for this recipe, because of the sauce, so just grill them however you like, but be sure to put some nice grill marks on them for better presentation. While your tuna is cooking, go ahead and prepare your rice. Again, it doesn't really matter what kind you use. Just make whatever kind you like, but make enough for about a 1/2 cup of rice for each tuna steak. Now for your sauce. Take the marinade that you just used for your fish and put it in a large sauce pan and cook over medium heat until it starts to reduce and thicken a little. Once this happens, go ahead and add your brown sugar, orange concentrate, rice vinegar and cayenne pepper. Cook sauce for about 10-15 minutes until it starts to thicken a little. Once your sauce is done, serve it over the rice with your tuna steak on top. Use about a 1/2 cup of rice and 1/4 cup of sauce. You can put the sauce on top of the fish if you like, but we like to put it on the rice so that we can savor the flavor of the tuna a little more. Enjoy!
