Enjoy this delicious grilled fresh tuna steak recipe

This is one of the best fresh tuna recipes I have come across. Whether you're a calorie-counter or not, if 30 minute meals appeal to you, and your family enjoys grilled tuna steak, you can't go wrong with this recipe.

Grilled tuna steaks are great idea for a summer barbecue that is at once both exotic (well tuna steaks are still al little exotic, aren't they?) and minimalist - and grilling tuna is so quick and easy as well!

I prefer to use the upper portion of the tuna filet, as I find this yields best results when grilling tuna
