Grilled Tuna Steaks Recipe

"My husband and I love to grill," Michelle Armistead says of her low-fat and nearly carb-free entree. "This delicious recipe is quick enough for weeknight meals. Simply make a salad and side dish while the tuna steaks are marinating, and dinner is on the table in no time," she writes from Marlboro, New Jersey.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 5 min. + marinating Grill: 5 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup white wine or chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 tuna steaks (6 ounces each)

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Pour 1/2 cup marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; add tuna steaks. Seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 30 minutes, turning once or twice. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade for basting.
  • 2. Drain and discard marinade. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack.
  • 3. Grill tuna, covered, over medium-hot heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 5-6 minutes on each side for medium-rare or until slightly pink in the center, basting frequently with reserved marinade. Before serving, brush tuna with remaining marinade. Yield: 6 servings.
