Lime- Chili Marinated Tuna Steaks


  • 4 tuna steaks (about 6 ounces each and 1-inch-thick)
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons bottled chili sauce
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch


  1. Rinse tuna steaks and pat dry. Arrange tuna in a 13x9-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 to 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 to 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.
