Helen's Marinated Ahi Tuna Steaks with Ginger Syrup

Helen and Bobby Anderson are one of Boquete's most memorable and fun couples! My day is made whenever I get a chance to see Helen's smiling face and Bobby's flirty and twinkling eyes.

I know that she is a terrific all around cook, especially Southern Style cooking. I do love gabbing with her about how to round out her talents with lots of ethnic flavors and techniques. Lets not forget to mention that Bobby is an amazing BBQer!

Here is her recipe for Ginger-Soy Marinated Ahi Tuna Steaks.
I am sure that it would be great on the outside grill as well. Enjoy and Thank you Helen!

If you are having a hard time finding fish, here is Miguel the fish guy's cell number 6890-5394. He travels around Boquete several days a week vending his fresh fish from Pedregal.
