Grilled jalapeno tunaPosted: May 23, 2011
WOW this was great. I am not the biggest tuna fan, but H loves it, so I wanted to give him a meal he would love. This recipe was easy and OH SO GOOD! Very flavorful, light and has a lot of ingredients we have on hand. Found on allrecipes, we will definitely make this again!
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons lime juice
1 jalapeno pepper, minced
3 cloves garlic, minced
salt and pepper to taste
1 pound ahi tuna steaks
Whisk the olive oil, lime juice, jalapeno pepper, garlic, salt, and pepper together in a flat-bottomed dish. Place the tuna steaks in the dish, turning to coat entirely in marinade. Refrigerate 20 minutes.
Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
Cook the steaks until they are beginning to firm and are hot in the center, 5 to 7 minutes per side.
