Grilled Ginger-Lime Tuna Steaks

Grilled Ginger-Lime Tuna Steaks

Add a zesty twist to your fish! Tuna takes on a whole new taste when it’s marinated in an easy homemade ginger-lime marinade.

Prep Time



Total Time






1 1/2
lb tuna steaks, 3/4 to 1 inch thick
cup lime juice
tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
teaspoons finely chopped gingerroot
teaspoon salt
teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
cloves garlic, crushed
Lime wedges, if desired
  1. If fish steaks are large, cut into 6 serving pieces. In shallow glass or plastic dish or resealable food-storage plastic bag, mix remaining ingredients except lime wedges. Add fish; turn to coat. Cover dish or seal bag and refrigerate, turning fish once, at least 1 hour but no longer than 24 hours.
  2. Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Remove fish from marinade; reserve marinade. Cover and grill fish about 4 inches from medium heat 11 to 15 minutes, brushing 2 or 3 times with marinade and turning once, until fish flakes easily with fork. Discard any remaining marinade. Serve fish with lime wedges.

Did You Know?
Although keeping the remaining used marinade may be tempting, be sure to discard it. It contains bacteria from the raw fish that could make you sick.
To test fish doneness, place a fork in the thickest part of the fish and gently twist it. The fish will flake easily when done.
