Ahi Tuna with a Honey Glaze, on Watercress

Pin It

We bought some ahi tuna the other day and I wanted to do something different. Not that the soy/wasabi marinade my husband usually makes isn't delicious, but, we were going to have it with watercress and I wanted something more... balanced. I quickly looked up a honey glaze recipe on my phone, and by the time I got home, I forgot the exact measurements and ingredients, and decided to wing it.

Honey Glaze Recipe (this is by no means exact)
2 tbsps of honey
2 tsps of rice vinegar
olive oil
red pepper flakes
juice of one lime
salt and pepper

I mixed the above ingredients, tasting along the way, adjusting the olive oil or vinegar. Then I brushed both sides on the tuna and grilled it. I reserved some of the glaze to drizzle over my salad and fish after it was cooked. It was pretty simple and delicious. The sweetness went well with the bitterness of watercress, which we don't have very often, but have vowed to more regularly.
