This recipe is especially good for those who are afraid to put fish on the grill, thinking that it will stick to it or not be sturdy enough to be cooked this way. That is not the case of tuna. The fact that you cook it as a roast, without slicing it into steaks, ensures the tenderness and moisture inside the meat. Its simply delicious! It goes great with a fresh greens salad with balsamic vinaigrette.

  • Heat a grill for medium heat. Brush the grate with oil, once it is hot.

Very tasty though I felt like the tuna needed a sauce or something to serve with it. The flavors of the marinade didn't penetrate very far into the fish. Pay careful attention to cooking time it will vary depending on if your tuna roast is round and fat or long and skinny and you don't want to overcook it. Read More

30 Minutes? How about 4min per side. Cook Tuna to long and you'll lost all the flavor. It will be very red in the center but that's OK. Just try it you'll like it......Mikey did... Read More
