I made this for dinner last night and was very disappointed. I have better recipes for seared tuna. I thought the dish lacked flavor. The salsa tasted like deconstructed guacamole and I couldn't taste the soy dressing/glaze at all. It seemed like an unnecessary step to glaze the tuna with the soy dressing since it didn't seem to add any additional flavor. I kept rereading the recipe to make sure I wasn't forgetting to add something to the salsa since the ingredients were exactly the same as my guacamole recipe. I'm not sure what I would change to improve this dish so I will not make this again.
Seared Tuna with Avocado Salsa

This was very good! I made the salsa about an hour in advance and swapped chopped chives for the cilantro as my husband is not a fan. I added in a handful of additional sliced tomatoes and only used half of the jalapeno. I served the tuna over mixed greens with some sliced cucumber. I added some corn tortilla strips that I cut, brushed with oil and dusted with garlic salt and chili powder, baked at 375 for 10 minutes on parchment paper. I added a little bit of this Basil Lime dressing and it made for a fantastic salad: http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/basil-lime-dressing-10000001667899/ I skipped the step of adding more soy sauce mixture over the tuna since the dressing took care of that extra flavor. This is a new favorite!

A definite keeper. Make the salsa ahead of time to allow the flavors to blend.

We liked this. When my husband grilled the tuna, I can't promise he followed the recipe... He never does!

tuna was so-so. next time i'll just season with oil, salt and pepper. the salsa was wonderful. don't like cilantro so left it out.

Very good - and EASY to make. I left out the cilantro and jalapeño (although I'd use the jalapeño in the future for some kick). I marinated the tuna steaks in the soy/ black sugar, too. Really good and easy for a novice like me. My husband was delighted.

My whole family thought this was a great dish. I also made the salsa the night before so that the flavors could blend and I left out the cilantro. I served rice and carmalized brussel sprouts with it.

We enjoyed this recipe - even my 4 year old son. I served it with some hummus and pita chips. I will make this again. I would serve it to guests but with something "fancier" on the side.
