Grilled Southwest Tuna


Tasty moist and tender. This was my first time doing tuna other than that associated with a can opener.  We somewhat inherited two tuna steaks that need to be used. Most of the recipes were shall I say fancy. The CI recipe only was a oil marinade for several hours followed with salt and pepper and looked like a good start but I wanted some flavor. Fine Cooking had a southwest that would do just fine but they just brushed on the spiced oil rub and cooked in 5 minutes. I combined the ideas and let it marinade for several hours.

Very nice fish marinade, Dan. I'm a big fan of cumin and lime juice together.
