Grilled Tuna Steaks with Dill Sauce

Rating: 4.38 stars
It's hard to tell which is better in this, the tuna or the sauce! The sauce is even better if done the previous day, but who knows when you're going to catch a tuna? No kidding, if you can do it, it gets no better. Otherwise, get the freshest you can get from your fish monger.

Grilled Teriyaki Tuna

Yellowfin tuna is always delicious when grilled. This is great at a tailgate party, or at your Saturday afternoon summer barbecue. You can add a little cayenne pepper or minced fresh ginger to the marinade to give it a little extra kick.

Tuna is available most of the year, so fresh steaks should be easy to come by. Be choosy: a reddish color is acceptable, but flesh with dark spots or streaks should be avoided. As with all great ocean fish, the flesh tends to be dry. Marinate with oil, and avoid overcooking. The timing is critical, as tuna should be served medium rare. Use a kitchen timer.

Delicious right off the grill! Take care not to overcook the steaks, as tuna can quickly become quite dry.
