Sesame Crusted Grilled Ahi Tuna in Ginger Soy

2 Ahi Tuna Steaks (I like them big. 12-16 oz each)
1 cup soy sauce (I prefer Aloha brand, a little milder than Kikkoman)
1 tsp sesame oil
1 Tbs Grated fresh Ginger
5 cloves Garlic (minced or crushed)
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup orange juice
sesame seeds

Put all ingredients except the Ahi and sesame seeds in a bowl and mix well.
Place the Ahi steaks in the bowl with the marinade and let it sit for no more than a half hour. Remove Ahi Steaks from marinade and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Oil your grill with canola oil (or whatever you are used to). Grill over high heat for 3 minutes per side, or until it is seared to your liking. I love mine rare. I stays on the grill for only about 2 minutes per side depending on thickness.
Let me know how it goes. Post a comment.

I was looking online for an easy marinade for some excellent ahi I had purchased. This recipe is fabulous. My guests raved about it. Definitely a keeper.
