Grilled Tuna Steak
The meals around our house lately have been a bit different because my husband and younger two children are off tent camping in the Tetons this week. And because my oldest son and myself are fish lovers and the campers are not, my husband challenged the two of us to eat fish every day they are gone. We took the challenge gladly.
Day 1 we went out for sushi to a restaurant called the Tokyo Grill in Northfield, MN and the food was exceptional as well as very responsibly priced - we will definitely return. Day 2 we made grilled tuna steak, and here is the simple recipe I used:
Large tuna steak
2 Tablespoons real lime juice
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 onion sliced
1 Tablespoon butter
1 cup homemade salsa
To start the tuna steak, marinade the steak in the lime juice and then sprinkle the paprika and salt on top and then cover and refrigerate the steak for 3 to 5 hours.
Next, warm the grill to medium and then put an oiled top half of a broiler pan on the grill. When the pan is sufficently warmed, place the fish and the veggies with the butter on the pan, turn the grill down to warm and cover.
The fish will take about 15 minutes to cook (that depends on your grill of course). Make sure to rotate the fish while cooking as well as stir the veggies so neither will burn. Enjoy!
