Barbecue season is right around the corner so it's time to stock up on some great summer grilling recipes! Tuna is one of the richest sources of Omega-3 Fatty Acids, an essential component for a balanced diet - with benefits ranging from cardiac health to long-term memory retention. It's high in protein and low in fat and carbs.

Delish! One of the best marinades I've tried in awhile. It would probably be good on chicken too, but it was PERFECT on the tuna steak. I served it with Asian Coleslaw (just a leeeetle too much,) but would've been great w/ a Mexican rice. Thank you!
