If you like grilled tuna then you need to try this simple but delicious tuna. It is so good that my son and I were fighting over the last piece!

We haven't had tuna in a long time and I will add it to our summer meals on a regular basis we liked it so much cooked on the grill like this. The flavor was great with the creole seasoning and lemon/lime combo!

Yep simple and great Linda, I don't know about the pats, my pat may be bigger than yours, this is simple and still brings out the flavor of the tuna, sometimes simple is really the best, the Capt. gives this 5 stars!

An excellent and simple recipe that doesn't mask the taste of the tuna. I used Old Bay seasoning only because Tony's is used on virtually everything down here, so I seldom use it at home. I'll be using this recipe over and over again. Thank you Linda, for another great recipe.
