Tuscan Style Grilled Tuna Steaks

Since our local supermarket had some great looking tuna steaks, we had to buy them. Both of us like tuna tartare (yes, the raw stuff) but we wanted to try grilling the steaks. The result was great!  This is perfect for a small get together over the long weekend, which is why I am posting this early this week!

Tuscan-Style Grilled Tuna Steaks
As seen on Food Network with Rachael Ray

Prep Time: 15 min

Cook Time: 12 min

Serves: 4 servings

Ingredients

4 fresh tuna steaks, 8 ounces each, 1-inch thick
1 lemon, zested
3 sprigs fresh rosemary, about 2 tablespoons leaves stripped from stem
Handful flat leaf parsley
3 cloves garlic, crushed
Coarse salt and black pepper or grill seasoning
Extra-virgin olive oil, for cooking

Rinse and pat tuna steaks dry. Place zest on top of cutting board. Pile rosemary and parsley leaves on top of zest. Pile garlic and some coarse salt and black pepper or grill seasoning on top of herbs. Finely chop the garlic, herbs, and spices. Drizzle the olive oil over the tuna steaks just enough to coat each side. Rub herb and garlic mixture into fish, coating pieces evenly on each side. Let stand 10 minutes.

Grill tuna steaks 6 minutes on each side or 4 minutes on each side, if you prefer pink tuna at the center. Cook steaks over: high setting on indoor electric grill, medium high heat on outdoor gas grill or, 6 inches from hot, prepared charcoal.
