Honey Lime Tuna Steaks
- Ready In:
- 1⁄4 cup light olive oil
- 1 tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons basil leaves
- 1 lb tuna steak (works well with swordfish steaks too)
- Combine first 5 ingredients in shallow dish or self-closing plastic bag. (I prefer to use a shallow dish so that the honey doesn't stick in one place -- easier to mix I think -- ).
- Add tuna steaks; turn to coat. Refrigerate 20 minutes. Turn occasionally.
- Grill or broil 8 to 10 minutes per inch of thickness (or until fish flakes easily with a fork.)
- NOTE: Baste 1 or 2 times with leftover marinade during cooking.
- Discard leftover marinade.

Oooooh lovely - thank you! This was a really tasty recipe and even with just 20mins marinade time the steaks came out lovely and tender. My other half wont eat fish with any pink bits in it so I have to overcook it, but to be honest it was still excellent - so much more moist than usual. I followed the recipe as stated, except for the old bay spice seasoning (cos I didn't know what it was and by the time I found out it was too late to make any). Also, I baked in the oven at 200c because our grill is busted but, as I say, they came out beautifully. Thanks for a great recipe Stacky5LRC!
Fantastic recipe! I used swordfish. The marinade worked fine in a ziplock bag; I just mixed all the marinade ingredients well before adding it to the bag with the fish. We used the George Foreman grill to cook this and it came out really tasty and super moist. Thanks for a great recipe, I will use it again, for sure!

Editor's Note: Sadly Stacky5 passed away on Monday, October 20, 2008. Hi! My name is Stacy, and I'm a single Mom who works full-time with 4 kids ranging from ages 9 to 21, a brand new granddaughter named Faith, and a cat named Pubert (we call him Pube) who is also my kid... That's his photo as my icon. Oh, and a new kitten that the kids named "KeeKee" but who I call Little Kitteh. I love them with all my heart! Even though I don't have my parents anymore, their presence is always felt and their love has resonated in my life, even after all this time. You'll find a lot of my posted recipes that refer to "Jolean" --- and that's my Mom. :) I sure do miss her... I love music, especially 70's music, cats, incense & lavalights, candles, and I love to play guitar. I've been called an old "hippie chick," and I don't mind that label in the least. I also love to try other people's recipes and find ones that remind me of my Mother, and those precious memories that I had growing up in a household with such a wonderfully comforting cook...I work full-time in a real estate office as an office administrator. I came to this site looking for recipes that were tried and true. I stayed at this site because I found people who were kind, loving, caring and shared the same interest that I do --- food and cooking. I've saved a lifetime of recipes and learned so much about cooking and ingredients that I actually feel proud of my cooking. I bet my Mom looks down on me with pride every time I cook a new recipe from RecipeZaar, and I bet my Dad cracks up every time he sees me photographing what I've cooked! My daughters have actually gotten into the act, too, and are quite versed in searching for recipes and answers here on Zaar. Makes me proud to be their Mom. RecipeZaar isn't just a "website." It's a lifestyle. And some of the friends I've made here are LIFELONG friends to me --- and in my estimation, those types of people are a rare thing to find in this world. :) P.S.
