Grilled Tuna Steaks


Publix recently had wild, never-frozen yellowfin tuna steaks on sale.  The tuna was $6.99 a pound, and apparently, that was a really great deal.  For some reason, I've always been intimidated to try grilling tuna steaks, but this was a deal I couldn't pass up.  They were great, and Jim Bob and I really loved them. 

Grilling tuna steaks is similar to grilling steaks.  They do best to marinate them for short amounts of time.  We marinated for 30-45 minutes.  You can eat them rare, medium, or well-done. 

Grilled Tuna Steak
4 - 4 oz. tuna steaks
1/4 cup pineapple juice
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
2 Tablespoons fresh chopped parsley
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon chopped oregano
1/2 teaspoon group black pepper

Combine all instructions and marinate tuna steaks, covered in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.  Preheat grill for high heat.  Lightly oil grate.  Cook the tuna steaks for 5 to 6 minutes, then turn steaks, baste with marinade.  Cook an additional 5 minutes or to desired doneness.
