  1. Soak bamboo skewers in cold water for 30 minutes. Combine the tuna, lemon juice, and five-spice and oil in a bowl, and toss well to coat. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Thread tuna, onion, tomato, and zucchini onto skewers. Cook on a very hot grill pan for 3-5 minutes on each side until the tuna is seared and the tomatoes begin to blister. Sprinkle with cilantro, and serve at once.
