Serves: 4 • Time to Prepare: 1 hr. 30 min.

Ingredients

1/2 lb. Yellow Fin Tuna, cut into 1 inch cubes
1 pineapple, cut into 1 inch cubes
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tbsp. chopped garlic
2 tbsp. chopped ginger
1 tbsp. sesame oil
  black pepper to taste
4 6 inch bamboo skewers
  corn starch

Directions

In a medium bowl, combine teriyaki, soy, water, garlic, ginger and sesame oil. Add black pepper to taste and mix well.  

Assemble skewers with 2 pieces of tuna and 2 pieces of pineapple on each. Place in a large serving tray that is at least 2 inches deep. Pour sauce over skewers and put in fridge to marinade for at least 1 hour.

Preheat grill to medium heat and place skewers on grill. Rotate skewers every 2 minutes or so for a total cooking time of 8-10 minutes. 

As the skewers cook, pour remaining marinade in a sauce pan. Add water, roughly half the total amount of the marinade. Reduce using high heat and adding small amounts of cornstarch until you reach a syrup consistency.

Plate skewers and drizzle a spoonful of sauce on each skewer.
