Apr 24, 2012

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lb (750 g) tuna steaks, 3/4 to 1 inch thick (about 2.5 cm)
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) lime juice
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) olive or vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) finely chopped gingerroot
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt
  • 1/8 tsp (0.5 mL) ground red pepper (cayenne)
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • Lime wedges, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    If fish steaks are large, cut into 6 serving pieces. In shallow glass or plastic dish or resealable food-storage plastic bag, mix remaining ingredients except lime wedges. Add fish; turn to coat. Cover dish or seal bag and refrigerate, turning fish once, at least 1 hour but no longer than 24 hours.

    Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Remove fish from marinade; reserve marinade. Cover and grill fish about 4 inches from medium heat 11 to 15 minutes, brushing 2 or 3 times with marinade and turning once, until fish flakes easily with fork. Discard any remaining marinade. Serve fish with lime wedges.
