Marinated Tuna Steak
Tuna steaks are a perfect candidate for grilling, and a sweet, tangy marinade keeps them moist and flavorful.
Sesame Seared Tuna
Easy, great tasting tuna coated with sesame seeds, and quickly seared. This tuna is served rare, so be sure to use a good quality fresh tuna.
Grilled Teriyaki Tuna
Yellowfin tuna is always delicious when grilled. This is great at a tailgate party, or at your Saturday afternoon summer barbecue. You can add a little cayenne pepper or minced fresh ginger to the marinade to give it a little extra kick.
Bow Tie Tuna Florentine
A classy version of tuna casserole. A creamy pesto sauce with spinach, bow tie pasta and tuna. Serve with warm French bread and wine for an elegant 'hot dish.'
Portuguese Fresh Tuna (Sauce and Marinade)
Family Recipe, a staple once a year when fresh tuna was available in my area. It's pretty spicy, so it is generally served with boiled potatoes which are perfect for soaking up the sauce. The sauce is awesome and stands up to the very meaty fish. For some reason, long lost, my grandmother always asked for the darkest tuna steaks they had. She insisted they were better. Pretty sure my grandmother used lard for frying, my aunt says butter and oil do fine. Any vegetable oil is fine if you don't buy you olive oil by the gallon. Plate the fish with some rice or potatoes (both if you are Portugues).
Grilled Citrus Tuna
This is a delicious and healthy meal. I serve it with mango salsa and rice. It is a great meal for the warm months, but it can also be broiled in the winter.
Savory Pan-Seared Tuna Steaks
These marinated tuna steaks, served rare, taste 'fancy' but are very easy to cook. Even my husband, who doesn't like most cooked fish, enjoys these steaks. A sprinkling of cracked black pepper is a good finisher for this dish.
It may seem simple, but it's my favorite way to have tuna. Seared fish steaks are a Cajun tradition.
