  • 1 Tbsp sherry cooking wine, or mirin
  • 1/2 cup(s) low-sodium soy sauce

Step 1

Coat grill rack with cooking spray; preheat grill to high.

To make teriyaki sauce, in a small saucepan, combine garlic, ginger, sherry, soy sauce, orange juice, water, sugar and cornstarch. Boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly, until thick.

Coat all sides of tuna with teriyaki sauce. Grill, flipping once, brushing on more teriyaki sauce as fish cooks, about 4 minutes for rare, or longer to desired degree of doneness.* Serve with arugula tossed with your favorite salad dressing, or some oil, vinegar, salt and pepper (could affect POINTS values). Yields about 3 ounces of tuna per serving.
