Today I was happily surprised to have the day off, so I took a tuna steak out of the freezer and thawed it. I make my own teriyaki sauce by putting in 1 part vegetable oil, 3 parts low sodium soy sauce, 1 1/2 parts granulated sugar and fresh chopped or crushed garlic to taste (I like a LOT of garlic). I put all those ingredients in a bag with the tuna steak and let them sit together for a while. If you do it with chicken or beef, you can even do it the day before and it will just soak up all the flavours. Once I am ready to cook, I lightly oil my George Foreman Grill and toss the meat on the grill for a few. Tonight, I just tossed a single serving of italian veggies from Green Giant in the microwave for my side, but next time, I would like to use the extra teriyaki marinade to saute some mushrooms in and then put the whole lot over salad greens or brown rice or some couscous. Mmmmm.... yum!!
