PREP TIME: 10 minutes

Plus...20-30 Minutes to Marinate
COOK TIME: 6 minutes

One more recipe for the Quick-N-Easy category, and it’s quite a tasty one at that! Tuna steaks are really best grilled on an outdoor BBQ, but we are still slogging through Spring at the moment and have not yet dusted off the good ole’ outdoor grill. As an alternative, a stovetop grill pan or even grilling in the oven will work in a pinch. Also, try to use sushi-grade tuna for the very best flavour.


½ Cup red wine vinegar
2 Tbsp Wholegrain Mustard
3 Tbsp Honey
3 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Clove Crushed Garlic
3-4 Fresh Tuna Steaks
(approx 600 Gms or 1-1 ½ Lbs)


Combine the first 5 ingredients in a shaker or other covered container and shake to mix well.

Rinse & pat dry the tuna steaks then put them into a Ziploc bag (or other leakproof container) with the honey-mustard mixture.

Seal the bag and let marinate for about half an hour (20-30 minutes is sufficient) at room temperature.

Brush the grill (or grill pan) with the olive oil and heat thoroughly before adding the fish. Grill the tuna over high heat for about 2-3 minutes on each side, or until done as desired.

Remove the tuna from the marinade and pour the marinade into a small saucepan then bring it to a boil. Now remove it from the heat and set it aside until the fish is done.

Drizzle the hot honey mustard sauce over the steaks and serve immediately with a gorgeous baby-green salad and/or rice.
