Pepper- Grilled Tuna Steak With Parsley- Garlic Butter

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by GaylaJ

Big pepper flavor! I love freshly cracked black pepper so this is perfect for me. I have to back off the pepper a bit for my son's steak, though---just too much pepper for him. So adjust to suit your own taste. -adapted from License to Grill

I don't know how anyone could stand to eat so much pepper!! I did not use what was listed.. I simply cracked pepper on top of the steaks with a pepper-mill and patted the pepper in. I also squeezed a little lemon on top as I was cooking the steaks for extra flavor. I did not have any parsley for the butter, so I added some Cavender's Greek Seasoning. I served the tuna with Minute Rice. I put garlic powder and pepper into the water as it was boiling. When the rice was done, I squeezed a little more lemon juice into it. I put the tuna on top of the rice on a plate, and let the butter melt all over the steak and rice. DELICIOUS!

  2. In another small bowl, combine the salt and pepper and mix well. Press the tuna steaks into the mixture and coat on all sides; drizzle tuna lightly with olive oil.
  3. Grill over a medium-hot fire for 4-5 minutes per side for medium rare, depending on thickness.
  4. Serve with a large spoonful on the butter on top of each steak.
