Oriental Salad with Grilled Tuna

We love the sweet/salty/spicy flavors of an Asian-inspired salad topped with grilled tuna. We find, though, that we can make our version of this restaurant classic — and pay much less for it!

We buy very fresh tuna steaks - one per person - and marinate them in our Oriental marinade. When it's done, we put it on top of a salad that features greens, broccoli, water chestnuts and oranges. You won't find it anywhere better that this!

We use one tuna steak per person, marinated for at least two hours in our GOG Oriental marinade.

Our favorite entre at Gulf Coast restaurants is an Asian-inspired salad topped with grilled tuna. But these days, we find that we can make this great dish for much less than we pay for it when we eat out. For more recipes for tuna, see Smoked Tuna and Smoked Tuna Dip.
