  1. In a medium bowl, mix together 1/4 cup olive oil, lime juice, balsamic vinegar, garlic, ginger, and 1/4 cup cilantro. Add tuna fillets, and turn to coat evenly. Let marinate for several hours in the refrigerator.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil grate. In a small bowl, mix together honey, 2 tablespoons olive oil, and 2 tablespoons cilantro; set aside.
  3. When grill is hot, reduce heat to low, and place tuna fillets on grate. Close lid, and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Flip fillets over carefully, and close lid again for another minute to sear fish. Open lid, and continue cooking until barely done, basting frequently with marinade. When fish is almost cooked through, brush the honey glaze over both sides of fish, and remove from grill.

I didn't care for the marinade on these tuna steaks. The lime was a bit overpowering, and the cilantro with the tuna wasn't a very good match. I only marinated these for an hour and it was still...

I love this recipe. I like it better with lime, but will use lemon when I don't have lime. I prefer it with ground ginger, spreads the flavor better. I have baked it, fried it, and grilled it. I...

excellent dish! I have never enjoyed tuna steaks so much before! I don't know if the tuna I used was yellow fin, but it was delicious either way. I used powdered ginger because I did not have...

This was the tastiest fish dish I ever made! So easy and so delicious. I left over a small amount to bring to the girls at work to try. They all want the recipe. Even the on co-worker that d...

I was quite surprised at how much I enjoyed this. I have never been a big fan of fish...but I really liked the cilantro and lime flavors in this recipe. I recommend marinating tuna over night.

This was good. Nice fresh taste to it, will make again.

Yummy! So summery. The key with Ahi is always don't overcook! I have made this a few times and always feel like I finish with a gourmet dinner with a few simple ingredients. Everyone loves it!

I actually used swordfish and this was delicious! My guests thoroughly enjoyed it! Definitely a keeper!!
