Grilled Tuna Steak

July 9, 2012

Finally a food entry!  I recently purchased a Rachael Ray 30-minute Meal Book at the Friends of the Library used book sale for $2, and thought it was time to try a new recipe.

Tuscan-Style Grilled Tuna Steaks, adapted from Rachael Ray


  • 4 fresh Tuna steaks 1-inch thick
  • The zest of 1 lemon
  • A handful of fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • Steak seasoning blend or salt and pepper to taste
  • Extra-virgin olive oil


  • Rinse and pat tuna steaks dry.
  • Zest the lemon. Pile the rosemary and parsley leaves on top of zest and garlic and steak seasoning on top of herbs.
  • Mix the garlic, herbs and spices with your knife into a finely chopped mixture.
  • Drizzle olive oil over tuna steaks. Rub herb and garlic mixture onto fish. Let stand 10 minutes
  • Grill tuna steaks 2-3 minutes on each side for medium, or 5 minutes per side for well done

*Be sure to buy 1-inch thick tuna steaks or leave on for appropriate amount of time. I wasn’t paying attention to directions and bought thick steaks that needed to be cooked several minutes longer.

Thanks for reading!
