Grilled Tuna Steaks
Fresh Thyme and Garlic Grilled Tuna Steaks
Tuna contains very little oil, which will make it dry out when cooking. So be sure not
to overcook it. You will want to cook your tuna
to a medium or medium rare. Which means the fish should be pink in the center.
If you like your grilled tuna steaks
just seared, be sure to buy the freshest and best sushi grade tuna you can find.
