In preparation for the seafood cooking class I’m taking next week, I decided to thaw the tuna steaks sitting in our freezer.  I found an interesting marinade and it turned out pretty well.  I didn’t have any scallions, but it didn’t make much difference.  I made a salad and sauteed up some zucchini to go with it.

Asian Sesame Grilled Tuna Steak

2 albacore tuna steaks
1 clove garlic, grated
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 cup soy sauce
1-2 Tablespoons sesame oil
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
1 scallion, chopped

-Mix all ingredients except the tuna steaks together in a medium bowl
-Rinse the tuna steak with water, pat dry and season with salt and pepper on both sides
-Add tuna steak to marinade, turning once or twice with tongs to coat all sides
-Marinate for about 30 minutes in the refrigerator, turning once (TIP: don’t marinate too long or the acid in the lemon juice will start to “cook” the fish)
-Heat your grill to medium-high heat and oil the grates
-Grill tuna steak for 3 minutes on each side and serve
