Have two half-pound tuna steaks which are about 1.5 inches thick. What's the best way to egg these? I've marinated them in lime/ginger/soy/honey.[p]Thanks


  • CT Grillguy,
    Hot and fast. You over cook and they are tough. Hope you like medium-rare tuna, that is the best way to serve.[p]Mike

    This may appear twice, but:

    Sesame oil, sesame seeds, black pepper, and Tsunami Spin if you have any.

    600-650 90 seconds per side.

    That's it.
  • CT Grillguy,
    Mike is correct. FAST.... I do mine at about 500 for 2 min per side. Don't marinade for more that 30 min. I find they get tough if you use acid (Lime) in the marinade.
    Best of luck

  • Car Wash Mike,[p]Yes sir, we like em medium rare. About how many mins a side? Around 400 ok or should I go higher?

  • Buckethead,[p]Thanks!
  • CT Grillguy,
    400 would be your dome temp, so closer to fire will be hotter. We are talking maybe 90 seconds per side. You can always rest and put back on. I haven't had one for so long. Good luck and let us know.[p]Mike
