  • 1 Extras


  • 1/4 cup light soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons dry sherry or chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 tuna steaks (5 ounces each)
  • 1 large mango, peeled and cut into spears
  • 1 red bell pepper, quartered lengthwise


  1. In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, sherry or both, ginger, and garlic. Divide the marinade into 2 medium, shallow bowls. Place the tuna in one bowl and the mango and bell pepper in the other. Turn the tuna, mango, and bell pepper to coat both sides. Cover and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  2. Coat a grill rack or broiler pan rack with cooking spray. Preheat the grill or broiler to medium.
  3. Place the tuna, mango, and bell pepper on the prepared rack or pan. Discard the marinade from the tuna bowl. Grill or broil, basting occasionally with the marinade from the mango bowl, for 4 minutes per side, or until the tuna is just opaque and the mango and bell pepper are heated through and glazed.
