I like to have Grilled Ahi Tuna for lunch on a sunny day. Having it with mango salsa compliments well with the dish and provides it with a refreshing taste. This Grilled Ahi Tuna Recipe will guide you on how to make a flavorful grilled tuna dish that you will surely enjoy.
If you will ask me, I don’t mind eating my tuna raw – as long as it is fresh. I am a huge fan of tuna sashimi and it only takes soy sauce and Wasabi to seal the deal. However, grilled tuna is also great as long as it is not overcooked. The perfect grilled tuna, as far as I am concerned, is seared and completely cooked in the outside while still fresh and raw in the center. That is just my opinion, and I know that all of us have different preferences. This is only for tuna steaks though, for tuna belly and tuna panga (tuna jaw), everything should be fully cooked including the inside.
The secret to a tasty grilled tuna is in the marinade. This grilled tuna recipe suggests a simple marinade that will make your fish steak taste better.
