2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons calamansi juice
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 clove garlic, chopped
pepper, to taste
500 grams tuna belly
1 In a bowl, mix together soy sauce, calamansi juice, brown sugar, garlic, and pepper.
2 Drizzle marinade over tuna belly and leave to marinate for 30 minute to 1 hour.
