    This was great, it had a nice flavor. It worked well with regular rice noodles as well.

    Very good and would definitely do again. I used mahi mahi instead of tuna and turned out just as well.

    I thought this was very disappointing. The tuna did not have a lot of flavor and the noodles needed more flavor as well. I will not make this again.

    I have made this a couple of times and am always impressed by the presentation of this dish, and the flavor is great too. This is something I would serve to guests for sure. I did cook the Tuna a little less, (about a minute on each side) because I like it very rare, and next time I would toss the noodles with half of the reserved marinade and serve the rest on the side for dipping so the plate doesn't get flooded. I've served this both alone and with a side salad. Either way, its a keeper!

    I didn't have the mirin or the miso and it didn't matter, this was delicious. Used the Environmental Defense Fund Seafood Selector App while I was at the store to pick the Albacore. http://www.edf.org/page.cfm?tagID=1521 What a treat - my first time searing tuna. Will make again.

    This is a great dinner! I altered it in the following ways: (1.) Used crushed red pepper instead of ground red pepper (2.) Grilled the tuna instead of pan searing it (3.) Used a peeler to create carrot curls instead of cutting matchsticks for the noodles The marinade is light enough to let the flavor of the tuna to really come through (I want this if I'm going to spend big bucks on a tuna steak). And the sesame oil used in the noodles is in perfect ratio to the vinegar and mirin so that it is not over powering. I would make this again in a heart beat. ***When grilling this you want to make sure that your fish gets seared and is only cooked for about 3-4 minutes on each side. Doing this cooks the outside and leaves the middle pink so that you get that melt-in-your-mouth texture. To get the proper heat, place it about six inches above coals that are completely heated up, or over med-high heat on a gas grill.

    Used Swordfish instead of tuna and edamame instead of snap peas.

    A good summer meal, light and refreshing. We omitted scallions (being too lazy to go to the grocery store) and used Udon noodles. It's a yummy dish with Asian flair.

    This recipe was excellent and felt like a very light and healthy dinner. The fish turned out great! I used tilapia fish (something I had laying around in the freezer) instead of tuna but it still came out very tasty. I think the sauce will suit any type of soft, flakey fish. I wasn't a fan of the noodles though. Although the flavors aligned with the sauce used for the fish, it just wasn't very tasty to me. I think a lettuce salad would have tasted better. Hence the four star rating. All in all though, I was very pleased with tonights dinner. =)

    I needed a quick marinade for tuna using items that I had on hand and this one exceeded my expectations. It added flavor without overpowering the tuna. I didn't make the noodles since I didn't have the ingredients on hand but look forward to making them next time. Served the tuna with the reserved marinade & thinly sliced green onion.

    The tuna was very good, the sauce delicious. I would prefer hot noodles; next time I will warm in a skillet after rinsing in cold water.
