Number of Servings: 2


    1 Tablespoon soy sauce
    1/8 cup fresh lime juice
    1 teaspoon Asian (dark) sesame oil
    3 garlic cloves, minced
    Fresh ground pepper, to taste
    2 (6-ounce) tuna steaks (about 1 1/2 inches thick)


1. Combine the soy sauce, lime juice, sesame oil, garlic, and pepper in a large zip-close plastic bag; add the tuna. Squeeze out the air and seal the bag; turn to coat the tuna. Refrigerate, turning the bag occasionally, 30 minutes. Remove the tuna from the marinade; discard the marinade.

2. Spray the grill rack with nonstick spray; preheat the grill to medium-high or prepare a medium-high fire.

3. Place the tuna on the grill rack. Grill until browned but still pink in the center, about 6 minutes on each side for medium-rare.

Express Lane:
No time to prepare the grill? Broil the tuna instead. Spray a broiler rack with nonstick spray and preheat the broiler. Place the tuna on the rack and broil 5 inches from the heat until barely pink in the center, about 6 minutes on each side.

  • Incredible!
    I used this recipe as my first attempt ever making ahi tuna. I absolutely loved it! It was very easy to make and the whole family loved it. The only thing I'd change is the cooking time. I made this on my outdoor grill and think 6 min per side may have been a bit too long for this method. - 6/23/13
