Grilled Tuna Steaks

P9220072 

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
Ingredients:
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

Directions:
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.
