ok I didn't have 1/2 of the ingredients--only an orange and 1 yellow onion-- and it came out great. Plus I am not very good at reading directions, but I loved the idea Here's how I made it: Squeezed the juice from orange into sauce pan, added soy sauce and squirt of lime juice, drop of sesame oil. Reduced those down. In seperate pan sautee julian cut onions with a little olive oil and 1/4 of orange juice reduction until clear. Sear salt and peppered tuna steaks in pan with onions both sides until cooked to desired temp. Remove tuna. Pour the rest of the orange juice reduction in with onions and caramelized. Place caramelized onions on top of tuna. I placed tuna on bed of pesto pasta. Sweet, tangy and yummy.
