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. You can read more about fresh yellowfin tuna here.
