Tips and Tricks


Choose Fresh Tuna: Look for tuna steaks that are firm and have a bright, even color. Fresh tuna will give you the best flavor and texture.

Marinate Longer: If you have extra time, marinate the tuna steaks for up to an hour. This will help enhance the flavor even more.

Preheat the Grill: Make sure your grill is fully preheated before placing the tuna on it. A hot grill helps sear the tuna quickly, keeping it juicy inside.

Oil the Grill Grates: To prevent the tuna from sticking, lightly oil the grill grates before placing the steaks on them.

Don’t Overcook: Tuna can dry out quickly, so aim for a sear on the outside while keeping the inside slightly pink. It usually takes about 8-10 minutes per inch of thickness.

Use a Meat Thermometer: For perfectly cooked tuna, use a meat thermometer. Aim for an internal temperature of 125-130°F for medium-rare.

Let It Rest: After grilling, let the tuna steaks rest for a few minutes before serving. This allows the juices to redistribute, making the tuna even more tender.

Experiment with Herbs: Try adding fresh herbs like parsley, cilantro, or basil on top of the tuna steaks for extra flavor and a pop of color.
