Reviews forGarlic Herbed Grilled Tuna Steaks
"Excellent, easy, Garlic Herbed Tuna cooked at mefium high heat, on the stove , using 5 thicker filet pieces, in a covered 6" pan . 3 to 4 minutes each side kept it moist, flavorful, with a less pink center. The lemon juice over powered the herbs. The recipe is a good base to add a pinch of other flavors ."
"I love this recipe! I use about 2 bulbs of garlic with 2 tbsp of lemon juice and 3 tbsp of evoo. The extra garlic creates a nice crust."
"Absolutely WONDERFUL! I cooked the tuna on the grill and LOVED the flavor! The lemon adds just enough tartness to be distinguishable, but not too overpowering! EXCELLENT!!!"
"I marinated the tuna steaks for at least a full hour and the flavor was great!"
"easy, fast, very tasty"
