Lime- Chili Marinated Tuna Steaks


4 steaks tuna (about 6 ounces each and 1-inch-thick)
2 Tbs fresh lime juice
2 Tbs reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 Tbs honey
2 Tbs bottled chili sauce
2 tsp olive oil
½ tsp cornstarch

1. Rinse tuna steaks and pat dry. Arrange tuna in a 13×9-inch baking dish. Mix lime juice, soy sauce, honey, chili sauce, and olive oil in a small bowl. Pour over tuna. Turn fish to coat with marinade. Cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours.

2. Prepare grill to medium-high heat. Remove tuna from marinade. Pour remaining marinade into a small saucepan and set aside. Cook tuna over hot coals 4-5 minutes on each side. Fish should be lightly browned on outside and pale pink on thickest part. Remove from heat.

3. Bring reserved marinade to a boil over medium-high heat. Mix cornstarch with 2 Tablespoons water until smooth. Add to marinade. Cook and stir until sauce thickens, about 1 minute. Spoon sauce over tuna steaks and serve immediately.

“What a great marinade for tuna! Make sure to leave the tuna pink in the middle for the best taste. Not having coals to cook over, I used a saucepan which seemed to work just as well.”
