Grilled Ahi/Shibi Steaks (Yellow Fin Tuna)

Recipe of the Week - October 21st 2007

Enjoy the "other red meat" with this easy & versatile recipe. Use the marinade for both the Ahi/Shibi Steaks and as a base for stir fried vegetables!
2-6/9oz Wild Ocean Seafoods Yellow Fin Tuna Steaks
1 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 clove crushed garlic (for each steak)
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
small amount of sea salt, to taste
fresh ground black pepper, to taste
Prep Time: (15 Minutes)
In a shallow 9 X 13 inch glass dish, prepare all of the marinade ingredients. Remember, if you have more than 2 6/9oz tuna steaks, you might need to adjust the ingredients to marinate. Marinate both sides (baste or brush steaks and get marinade on both sides). Let sit in refrigerator for 30 minutes before grilling. *Soy sauce will overpower the tuna if you marinate for too long!Light the grill while tuna is marinating.
Cooking Time: (5 to 8 Minutes)
Grill for 4 minutes or less per side for 1 inch steaks, depending on how you like them. Steaks should be firm with pink in the middle. If you prefer steaks to be more rare, grilling time should be 2 1/2 minutes on each side.Recommended Side Dishes: Serve with white and long grain wild rice (We use Farmhouse® or Zataraines®)
Stir fry vegetables: Toss your vegetables in the remaining marinade, add 2 tbsp of Tom Douglas Chinese 12 Spice Rub. Either sautee or place in grill pan just before putting your Yellowfin Steaks on the BBQ
