How to Grill Ahi Tuna Steaks


Do you want to make a quick and easy gourmet style meal? How about grilling some Ahi Tuna Steaks?

Things You'll Need

  • Boneless tuna steaks 1-1/2 to 2 inches thick, (Ahi is best but or other Tunas will do)
  • Vegetable oil, (or Margarine)
  • Sea Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • Lemon Pepper
  • Dill Weed (optional)
  • Paprika (optional)
  • Combine equal amount of Salt, Pepper and Lemon Pepper with just a "pinch" of Paprika and Dill Weed for color and appearance

  • Mix your seasoning together in a bowl, (lifting and sifting with a folk).

  • Barely cover the Grill or the bottom of the Pan with your oil (cast iron works best and heats most evenly).

  • Heat the Grill/Pan to Medium Heat.

  • Rub the seasonings into the steaks very lightly and gently (be carful not to tear the tender flakes).

  • After the Grill/Pan is up to temperature, place your lightly seasoned Tuna Steak on the heated surface.

  • Heat until the edges turn white and flip once, (about 4 minutes). Then heat the second side for about 3 minutes.

  • There will be a VERY light golden brown color on the surface of the steaks and the sides will be completely white when the steaks are done.

  • Now Savor the Flavor!

Tips & Warnings

  • A few drops of Lemon juice over the top when done is good.
  • Make sure the cooking surface is up to temperature before laying the Tuna on it.
  • Do NOT over cook.
