    When ready to grill, brush both sides of tuna steaks with olive oil; sprinkle with peppered seasoned salt and cumin. Place on gas grill over medium-high heat or on charcoal grill 4 to 6 inches from medium-high coals. Cook 8 to 12 minutes or until fish flakes easily with fork, turning once. Serve tuna steaks with avocado mayonnaise.

  • To broil tuna steaks, place on broiler pan; broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using times above as a guide, turning once.
  • Cilantro, also called Chinese parsley, consists of the fresh leaves and stems of the coriander plant. Store cilantro in a plastic bag in the refrigerator.
  • Any mild-flavored salt-water fish steaks can be used in place of the tuna in this recipe. Try shark, halibut or sea bass.
