"This is such a great recipe and so easy to prepare. Thirty (30) minutes is all you need. Grill and enjoy. It is sweet, spicy, but tangy - the perfect mix of flavors. Inside or outside grill pan is best for this recipe, but you can also use a heavy saute pan too. I like to serve this with a mix of greens, cabbage, water chestnuts, and crispy chow mein noodles and a sesame dressing. A perfect weeknight meal."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Marinade ... To a large ziplock bag or bowl (non-reactive), add all the ingredients except the pepper and mix well. Then add the tuna, seal; or cover the bowl with saran wrap and refrigerate 30 minutes. No longer than 1 hour. Remove and let the fish set to take the chill off.

Step 2

Grill ... Heat up your outdoor grill, inside grill pan or saute pan to medium high to high heat. Tuna is cooked quickly at a high temp and should be served medium rare. Just a minute or two per side it all it takes. The picture I posted is a thinner piece, so 3 minutes total cooking time was enough. Thicker pieces obviously will take longer. Season your tuna steaks with salt and pepper on each side. Add to a hot grill or grill pan and sear on the first side for 1-2 minutes, flip and cook another 1-2 minutes. The tuna should be white or opaque on both sides, but still very pink in the middle.

Step 3

Serve ... Plate and squeeze with the lime wedge. Serve with a fresh green salad with Asian dressing; stir fried beans or carrots and some basmati rice. ENJOY!
