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

    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.
