An addictive savory and citrusy blend of flavors makes this accompanying sauce for grilled fish and seafood a tasty compliment. Make sure to use only freshly squeezed orange juice for optimum flavor.


  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup mirin
  • 1 small shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 jalapeño, seeded and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1 3-inch strip of lemon zest plus 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  1. Place the soy sauce, mirin, shallot, jalapeño, orange juice, lemon zest and juice, sugar and coriander into a saucepan over medium heat. Cook the mixture for about 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until reduced by half.
  2. Place the olive oil into a large sauté pan over high heat. Once it begins to shimmer, sprinkle the tuna steaks on both sides with salt and pepper and then place in the pan.
  3. Cook for 1 minute on each side and then transfer the seared tuna to a cutting board. Let rest for 1 minute before slicing and then serve immediately with the prepared citrusy soy sauce.
