Grilled Teriyaki Tuna

Recipe by  

"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."

Directions

  1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the teriyaki sauce, oil, garlic, and pepper. Place the tuna fillets in the bag. Seal the bag with as little air in it as possible. Give the mix a good shake, to ensure the tuna fillets are well coated. Marinate for 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil grate.
  3. Remove tuna from marinade, and place on grill. For rare tuna, grill for 3 to 5 minutes on each side. For medium, grill 5 to 8 minutes per side. For well done, grill for 8 to 10 minutes per side.

Great Ahi recipe. Taste just the way Mom use to make. I too, seared on a pan rather than the grill. Wonderful dish, will definitely make again.

This is a tricky one to review. I was disappointed with the actual marinade. I let it sit in the sauce over night, and was surprised at the lack of flavor. However, the tuna steaks themselves were the best we've ever eaten, so the meal was far from being a disaster! (By the way, the comment regarding over 40g of fat in this recipe - it's not as if you drink the marinade. It quite clearly says 'The nutrition data for this recipe includes information for the full amount of the marinade ingredients')

Fantastic, fantastic, fantastic. LOVE THIS. Was able to grill tuna to perfection - boiled the marinade down and put a small amount on top before serving and it was delicious. Will definitely make again.

This was absolutely the best tuna recipe that I have tried to date and I have been cooking for 32 years. It will definately go in our families favorites. D. Powell

Oh My Gosh!! What an outstanding recipe for tuna. I use Trader Joe's Veri Teriyaki sauce and marinate the ahi tuna for one hour in the refrigerator. Cook until medium rare inside, and top with homemade wasabi butter -- absolutely delicious!

This is a great recipe! Also - regarding the nutritional information (so many reviewers were overly concerned about fat and sodium) - you don't drink the marinade!

I don't like fish. But, I LOVE this! Easy, and melts in your mouth. Thank you for this wonderful, healthy recipe!

Pretty good, followed others advice and marinated for 4 hours, depends on thickness. For 1" steaks, 2 hours should do.
