Grilled Teriyaki Tuna

Grilled Teriyaki Tuna

Makes 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 3/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 4 (4 ounce) fillets yellowfin tuna

Directions

  1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the teriyaki sauce, oil, garlic, and pepper. Place the tuna fillets in the bag. Seal the bag with as little air in it as possible. Give the mix a good shake, to ensure the tuna fillets are well coated. Marinate for 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil grate.
  3. Remove tuna from marinade, and place on grill. For rare tuna, grill for 3 to 5 minutes on each side. For medium, grill 5 to 8 minutes per side. For well done, grill for 8 to 10 minutes per side.
  4. Cooking times will vary depending on the thickness of the fillets and the heat of the grill. Check the doneness of the fish by making an incision with a knife and checking the color in the middle.
