This past week, while at church, a few of the women began chatting about recipes. After listening to them, I was inspired to go home and try a new recipe: Grilled Garlic Lime Tuna.
It was a HUGE hit in my home! It was easy to make. Its nutricious – very high in omega-3 fatty acids and proteins. I loved it. The family loved it. I can’t rave about it enough!
For this recipe, I didn’t have time to get to the fish market and so used frozen tuna. I’m sure it would have tasted better with fresh fish; however, because I used frozen it cut prep time, which was a trade-off I was willing to take.
Also, it took me all of 5 minutes to prepare the tuna. Marinating it took longer. I left it marinating for about 45 minutes on the counter. If you’re pressed for time – 30 minutes will suffice. You can also leave it marinating overnight in the fridge if you want to prepare it ahead of time.
I loved the simplicity of this recipe. I also love how it can be used for a family dinner OR a romantic dinner. It’s not a heavy meal so it won’t weigh you down and looks fabulous when served. This recipe is perfect for when you want to create a lasting impression. Just keep in mind, that the recipe is for two. I doubled it for my own family.
Enjoy & have a Sabroso Saturday!
Grilled Garlic Lime Tuna (Makes 2)
- 2 Wild Ahi Tuna Steaks
- 3 tablespoons of Olive Oil
- 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
- 1 medium sized lime (about 2 tablespoons of fresh squeezed lime juice)
- 1 teaspoon of garlic
- 1 teaspoon of pepper
- 2 teaspoons of honey
- 1 large ziplock bag
- Add everything, except the Tuna, in a ziplock bag. Seal, shake and mix.
- Once mixed, put tuna into the ziplocked marinade mixture. Let marinade for at least 30 minutes.
- Preheat grill to medium high, about 375°. Grill for about 6 minutes. Turn and grill for 3 more, or until it’s medium rare, longer if you do not like it as rare – like me!
- Serve and enjoy!
