Very rarely does the commissary here sell tuna steaks but when they have them, we buy them. Even though I'm not a huge fan of the fish, the Mr. loves it. So when he came home one day with some fresh tuna I quickly hopped on the internet to look up a quick and easy recipe that didn't require an overnight marinade.
I did end up trying a bite and I will be honest that I sort of wished I'd have made a steak for myself. It wasn't spicy but it just had a nice balanced flavor to it. I will definitely be keeping this recipe in my back pocket for the next time the store gets good looking tuna steaks in.
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 6 garlic cloves, minced
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1/4 teaspoon wasabi paste
- 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
- 2 lbs tuna steaks
- 1 lemon, cut in wedges
- In medium bowl, combine oil, garlic, soy sauce, wasabi, lemon juice and pepper.
- Rinse fish under cold water and pat dry.
- Place fish in a shallow bowl and cover with marinade; refrigerate for 1 hour.
- Place tuna on non-stick grilling rack and grill 5-7 minutes on each side or until opaque; apply marinade while cooking to keep moist.
- Serve with lemon wedges.
