Introduction

This recipe came from the fish market at my local grocery, and is the best marinade I have found for tuna. Everybody loves it. This recipe came from the fish market at my local grocery, and is the best marinade I have found for tuna. Everybody loves it.
Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1-1/2 lbs fresh Ahi Tuna (frozen/previously frozen is not the same)
    Juice from two limes (about 1/2 cup)
    1/4 cup olive oil
    4 tsp Old Bay Seasoning
    2 tsp. chopped fresh cilantro

Directions

Combine ingredients for marinade, put in plastic bag with fish. Marinate the tuna for 30-60 minutes. Remove from marinade and place on grill. Grill to desired doneness. We prefer medium rare and it is delicious. It is easy to overcook tuna. You can always cook it a little more. A thick steak should take no more than 8 minutes for medium rare.

1-1/2 lbs tuna usually serves 4. You eat a much smaller piece than you would a steak. Leftovers are good the next day on a sandwich or salad.
