My grocery store didn't have Ginger marmalade nor wasabi paste, so I substituted wasabi sauce (so I suspect milder heat) and used 1 Tbsp Ginger paste & 1 1/4Tbsp orange marmalade, which was very good with a sushi grade tuna steak about an inch and a half thick. I've always liked tuna cooked rare in a restaurant, but was afraid I'd overtook it.Turned out great adding an extra minute to the grill times & very simple to make. I will try it again with the original ingredients if/once I find them.
Tuna Steaks with Wasabi-Ginger Glaze
Jasmine rice and steamed fresh asparagus pairs nicely with the tuna steaks to complete the meal. Chinese-style hot mustard has a sharp, spicy bite and can be used in place of wasabi paste. The ginger glaze would also pair well with salmon, chicken thighs, or pork.
