Great tasting grilled tuna steaks, with a bit of a bite from the jalapenos in the topping.....if you're heat sensitive, omit or reduce the amount for your tastes. Recipe is from Beth Kotek. Cooking time does not include the marinating and sitting times, or the time it takes to get your grill ready.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the topping ingredients in a small bowl; stir well. Cover and let it stand at room temperature at least 1 hour.
  2. Place the tuna steaks in a large, heavy-duty, zip-lock plastic bag.
  3. Combine 2 tbsp olive oil, and the next 6 ingredients in a small bowl; stir well. Pour the marinade mixture over the tuna steaks. Seal bag securely. Marinate in the refrigerator 30 minutes.
  4. Remove the steaks from the marinade; discarding the marinade. Spray a grill basket with cooking spray, and place the steaks in the basket. Grill steaks, covered, over medium coals 5 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
  5. Remove steaks to a serving platter and serve with the tomato topping.

Made this recipe for main reason I had these sitting in my extra freezer, after I bought these for Market Day at one of my kids schools, and also for the fact of the low calories this has. Now to the review, made these as written omitting the salt, and added an extra tablespoon jalapeno. The topping was definately super, and complimented these steaks. Also the soysauce, and lemon juice made for a nice mixture here too. Definately a go to inexpensive recipe again for the future. Made for 1-2-3 hits.

Yum! Much to my surprise, when I got home and opened up my tuna 'steak', it wasn't a steak at all but steak chunks. Oh well, lol. I minced my ginger rather than grating it because I love it so much and like to have those little surprise bites every now and then. Loved the jalapenos in this too. Thanks breezer for an exceptional meal. Made for Tic Tac Toe.

This was really good. The marinade was delicious and the tomato herb topping very tasty too.
