Let me say, WOW. I have never had tuna steak before and I was apprehensive because I thought it would taste too fishy. I was so wrong! I used extra virgin olive oil instead of vegetable oil, and prepared mustard instead of dry. I cooked this on the grill next to my husband's t-bone steak. When this tuna steak was done I had him try it, he liked it, and he HATES seafood! Excellent recipe, I will be using it again.
I have always wanted to try grilled tuna and boy, am I ever glad I did. My family thought this was wonderful. We really liked the flavor of the marinade. The kids even enjoyed this and they are picky eaters. Thanks for a winner.
I agree with all of the above comments, but to really get the very best out of the flavour, sear the tuna well on a very hot grilling plate BUT leave the centre of the meat almost uncooked. Excellent for sashimi lovers. Does not taste 'fishy'. I Substituted Wasabi for dry mustard for a distinctly fresh aftertaste. Excellent, this will be a regular at home.
Astonished!! That is what my guests were. Made this for a BBQ. Most had never had grilled tuna and thought it was going to taste like canned tuna. Wrong. This had such an excellent non-fishy flavor.The seasonings were a great compliment. Moist and tender. Simply the best.
Tuna should be jumping into boats to get grilled with this recipe. Absolutely fantastic!! Thank yoy, NurseDi
Nurse Di, these were so delicious. The marinade was superb. I liked the soy sauce-lemon flavor and the garlic certainly added some WOW. The tuna steaks came out nice and tender. A great grilling recipe. Thanks :)
This is a great recipe for those who usually don't care for fish. I made the recipe as is except I used prepared mustard instead of dry, and garlic powder instead of the fresh. I set my grill to medium-high and I grilled my husband's portion for three minutes on each side for a medium steak, and my and my kids' portion for four minutes on each side for a more medium-well steak. It was delicious, no dipping sauce needed. Even our young children gobbled up this tuna steak. I served the steak with white rice and steamed carrots. I will be using this recipe again. Thanks!
Absolutely love this recipe! The flavors are well balanced and compliment each other beautifully. I enjoyed the marinade so much that next time I'll marinate the steak 2 hours and use the extra as dipping sauce for the tuna. Doesn't get much better than this. Thank you for sharing.
Great recipe! I was so afraid that I was going to ruin such a beautiful piece of fish, but it turned out excellent. I marinated mine for several hours so it got quite lemony, but we didn't mind that at all. Thank you so much for helping me showcase how delicious and satisfying a tuna steak can be.
We were lucky to have fresh caught tuna which really makes a difference to any fish dish. It also helps that we live on the West Coast of South Australia...
I left the tuna to marinade for only 1/2hr because we were starving. Steamed rice and greens make a pretty good side dish too.
This is a great and easy recipe that we'll use again.
