2 Grilled Tuna Teriyaki

Thursday, March 17, 2011



This recipe has been a staple in our house for many years, and it's one of my husband's favorites. It's simple, fast and delicious. I originally used tuna steaks, but you can use any firm white fish, like the swordfish steaks I've used here, or mahi-mahi.

You'll need:

4 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons Chinese rice wine (or rice vinegar or white wine)
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger root
4 (6 ounce) tuna steaks (about 3/4 inch thick)
1 tablespoon vegetable oil

In a shallow dish, combine soy sauce, rice wine, garlic, and ginger. Place tuna in the marinade, and turn to coat. Cover, and refrigerate for about 15 minutes per side.


Preheat grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil grate. Discard the marinade, (or reserve and boil down in a saucepan for a few minutes to reduce and use as a sauce) and pat tuna steaks dry with paper towels. Brush both sides with oil. Place tuna steaks on the grill.

Cook for approximately 3 minutes on each side, or to your desired doneness. We like them a little pink on the inside. Our grill is out of commission right now, so I'm using my panini press griddle (just one side!)

I like to serve this with steamed asparagus or broccoli, and jasmine rice.

It's great! The fish stays moist and tender, and the ginger and garlic give it that wonderful flavor so popular in Asian cuisine, and the rice wine a nice tang.

Ingredients:
4 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons Chinese rice wine (or rice vinegar or white wine)
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger root
4 (6 ounce) tuna steaks (about 3/4 inch thick)
1 tablespoon vegetable oil


Directions:
-In a shallow dish, combine soy sauce, rice wine, garlic, and ginger. Place tuna in the marinade, and turn to coat. Cover, and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes per side.
-Preheat grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil grate.
-Discard the marinade, and pat tuna steaks dry with paper towels. Brush both sides with oil.
-Place tuna steaks on the grill. Cook for approximately 3 minutes on each side, or to your desired doneness.
