DELICIOUS and fresh way to serve grilled tuna. You can use your favorite cut/type. We love ahi or yellowtail for this recipe. Original recipe found on


  1. In a bowl, combine all ingredients for marinade.
  2. Pour 1/2 cup marinade into a large ziplock baggie and add tuna.
  3. Seal bag and be sure tuna is fully coated in marinade.
  4. Refrigerate for 2 hours. (Careful not to over-marinate the fish- the acidity will cook it if marinated too long!).
  5. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
  6. Coat grill rack with nonstick cooking spray before starting grill. Grill drained tuna, uncovered, for 2-4 minutes per side. (We like our's pink/rare on the inside) If you prefer yours to be flaky, grill for 5-7 minutes per side.
  7. Serve with the reserved marinade.
