Directions Step-By-Step

1
Put the tuna into a zip lock bag along with all the other ingredients. Marinate in fridge for at least an hour.

Lightly oil the grill, and heat to medium-high.

Discard marinade and wipe tuna down on all sides with paper towels.

Grill tuna on both sides, rotating ¼ turn on each side to get those nice X grill marks.

NOTE: Grilling time will depend on thickness of your tuna and your own particular preference.
