. . . all I can say is YUM!
With this high protein diet I’m on – I’m trying new things to increase my daily protein intake (no wise cracks, guys – I’ve already heard it!).
I bought tuna steaks. Unsure what to do with them, I decided to wing it.
I marinated 4 of them for 30 minutes in:
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 crushed fresh garlic cloves
2 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 cup light olive oil
After marinating for 30 minutes – – I tossed them on the grill outside. About 10 minutes per side (flipping only once). Once done – I sprinkled them with a bit of dill and served with snap beans w/ garlic.
I’m stuffed! It was incredibly good, if I do say so myself.
With Chris out of town on a biz trip this week – – – I have to taunt him. YOURS is in the fridge, sweetie. I’ll be having it for lunch tomorrow. Enjoy room service 😛

OOOH! I’m writing that down! 🙂
10 minutes per side!! oi vey! sounds overcooked! tuna is best served very rare (my opinion). you can eat it pretty much raw, you know? anyhoo, i have no doubt it was delicious with the dill, lemon, and pepper. do you use a gas grill or charcoal? i know, i am epi(way to)curious. i love food. and i love to cook.
Not over cooked at all, Jesse!
Gas grill. Very low heat. Tuna turned out perfect!
Uh oh. It actually sounds like you overcooked your fish. Believe it or not, tuna is supposedly best seared and cooked rare. It’s hard to get a regular grill hot enough to sear it, so the way I’ve heard that it’s best done is to get your charcoal chimney starter going really good, put a small grill on it, and then cook the tuna on your chimney starter rather than the grill… 😎
Uh oh – – my poor tuna.
… you can tune a piano . . but you can’t tuna fish?
