I have recently discovered that I adore tuna steaks. They may very well be one of my favorite foods. I have created a recipe for grilled tuna steaks that makes absolutely delicious tuna steaks. Not only is it tasty, but even cooks with limited experience can make this dish and wow their family.

The prep time on this one is quite quick, just be sure to plan ahead and allow time for the tuna steaks to marinate.

Recipe:  Grilled Tuna SteaksGrilled Tuna Steak Recipe


  • 4 (4oz.) tuna steaks 
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • !/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 Tablespoon Grey Poupon mustard
  • 1/2 cup olive oil


  1. Place tuna steaks in gallon size zip top freezer bag.
  2. Combine soy sauce, honey, lemon juice, lemon peel, mustard, and olive oil in a small bowl. Whisk until well blended
  3. Pour marinade mixture over fish and gently flip a couple of times to coat the tuna steaks really well.
  4. Place the plastic bag in the fridge, laying flat on a cookie sheet and marinate overnight.
  5. Get your BBQ grill ready, you need the heat to be medium-high.
  6. Place steaks on hot grill and cook about 6 minutes per side over moderate heat.
  7. Baste with marinade mixture every two minutes or so while cooking.

This grilled tuna steaks recipe make a wonderful, light summer supper. Just add a salad, some crusty bread, and maybe a nice bottle of wine and you are all set. It is very simple and quick to prepare, which is great for busy working families.

Just remember to plan ahead for marinating time. If you cannot let the steaks marinate overnight, you can get by with only three hours. This dish is impressive enough to serve to company, something I really love about it. Plus, the tuna steaks do not taste “fishy” so most kids who turn up their noses at fish will enjoy this entree. Enjoy!

    I would so love to get really good fresh tuna to grill. I can eat it raw actually when it is VERY fresh and I adore it grilled (is it okay to adore food>). I will be hosting Crock Pot Wednesdays beginning August 5, and I hope you will join in. There will be prizes:)
