“Once the tuna hits the grill, do not move it around or it may tear the tuna. This recipe is for tuna that is still pink in the middle (medium rare). Increase the cooking time for tuna that is more cooked through."
—Vance E. Werner Jr., Franklin, Wisconsin

  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, finely chopped
