Grill tuna over a high heat until it is cooked through. Be sure to oil the tuna a bit or oil the grill before putting tuna on. Tuna drys out quickly on the grill and if you cook tuna beyond medium rare it will be dry. Grill 6-8 minutes on each side or 4 minutes on each side, if you prefer pink tuna at the center. Season with herbs and spices.

You can also marinade the tuna before cooking in a light marinate: olive oil, herbs, spice and a few drops of lemon juice

Another great marinade consist of garlic, ginger,low sodium soy sauce and sesame seeds.

Optional:

Delicious cilantro sauce

Mix a little bit of chopped fresh cilantro leaves, 2-4 teaspoons fresh ginger(peeled and grated), 4-5 grated garlic cloves, 2 tbs olive oil, lime juice, a little ammount of low sodium soy sauce and freshly grounded black pepper. Pour cilantro sauce into skillet and cook for a 1 min.

Tuna steak goes great with steamed veggies 🙂  Enjoy!
