Question Marinated Grilled Tuna

I know you wonderful people can help me with this

I had a recipe for tuna steaks (to be grilled) that included a ginger and wine and I can't remember what else marinade and I can't find it and I LOVED it a whole lot! When will I remember to put my favorite things in at least three places?????

I suspect Wasabi could make this in his sleep but can somebody please at least give me a start?

You only marinated it for about 20 minutes because it was so intense it would otherwise cook the tuna.

Ideas anyone?

Thanks in advance!

Linda could the other ingredients have been Mirin (sweetened Japanese cooking wine) and soy? Have done tuna that way a few times and it is real tasty. As far as wasabi I make a wasabi mayonnaise that goes real well with tuna.

1 cup mayonnaise (Homemade is preferable but Dukes works well)
1-2 tbsp prepared wasabi
1 tblsp Mirin
fresh ground black pepper

mix well and serve over any grilled oily fish. Salmon, mackarel, tuna, bluefish, etc

Ginger and mirin could also be TERIYAKI sauce. Did it have soy sauce in it?

If the marinade "cooked" the tuna, then it most likely also had some type of stronger acid, other than the wine. If it was an asian based recipe then it was probably either rice wine vinegar, pure citrus, or ponzu.
