Grilled Citrus Tuna


This is a delicious and healthy meal. I serve it with mango salsa and rice. It is a great meal for the warm months, but it can also be broiled in the winter.

  • ½ cup orange juice

  • ½ cup olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon oregano, dried

  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh parsley

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 2 (6 ounce) fresh tuna steaks


  1. In a large bowl, combine orange juice, olive oil, oregano, parsley, salt, and pepper. Mix well. Place the tuna steaks in the bowl, turn to coat both sides with marinade; cover and refrigerate 30 minutes.

  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat.

  3. Remove tuna from the marinade and shake off excess. Place tuna onto preheated grill and cook to desired doneness, about 5 minutes per inch for medium-rare or 10 minutes per inch for medium-well.
