Recipe Notes:

  • For a really low calorie meal, serve grilled tuna steaks with your favorite steamed green vegetable, such as asparagus or baby stem broccoli. I love serving these grilled tuna steaks with rice and green beans, or an Asian-style salad with dressing.
  • The marinade in this recipe provides great umami flavor, although it is completely optional.
  • While I love salmon, it can be expensive, especially when served to a large family. Tuna is an excellent alternative that is healthy, tasty and inexpensive.
  • If you enjoy a spicy kick to your food, add a small amount of cayenne pepper to the marinade.grilled ahi tuna steaks sliced ​​on a plate
  • It is important that the pan or grill coat well with cooking spray so tuna steaks don’t stick to surface of skillet. The pan should also be very hot before adding the tuna steaks. Like all meat, allow your seared tuna steaks to rest for a few minutes before serving.
