Soy-marinated grilled tuna

adapted from allparenting


  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 (1-inch) piece fresh ginger, sliced
  • 2 (6 ounces each) fresh ahi tuna steaks, about 1-inch each
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the fresh lime juice, soy sauce and sesame oil. Pour the mixture into a large resealable plastic bag. Add the ginger slices.
  2. Season the ahi tuna steaks with pepper, transfer to the bag and seal the bag and marinate for 15 minutes. Take care not to marinate for any longer, otherwise the fish will start to “cook” in the marinade.
  3. Heat an oiled grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. Sear the fish until the desired degree of doneness is reached, about 2 minutes per side.
  4.  Garnish with green onions

Tuna steaks

28 Aug

We love tuna steaks, they’re quick, delicious, and healthy! Usually we just season them up and throw them on a grill pan. This time I decided to marinate. They came out good. The flavor for marinating was very subtle though. I served them with some corn on the cob and noodles from Costco.


Tuna Steaks
adapted from will cook for friends

2 tuna steaks
2 TBSP soy sauce
2 TBSP honey
1 TBSP lime juice (about half a lime)
1 TBSP rice vinegar
1 TBSP freshly grated ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. wasabi paste
1/8th-1/4 tsp. sriracha
1 TBSP toasted sesame oil

In a bowl, combine all ingredients to make a marinade. Place the tuna steak(s) into a large zip-top bag and pour the marinade over top. Squeeze out as much of the air as you can, seal, and let sit in the fridge for at least 30 minutes and up to a few hours.

Heat a heavy bottom skillet over medium-high.
Add the tuna to the pan, and let cook for about 2 minutes – do not stir or move the tuna around. Flip, and let cook for another 1.5 – 2 minutes. Remove from heat.

Tuna steaks, wasabi mashed potatoes, roasted broccoli, & beet chips

17 Jul

I had some broccoli, beets, and potatoes to use up from the csa. We hadn’t had tuna in awhile so I seasoned up some tuna steaks and put them on the grill pan about 90 seconds per side. The beet chips didn’t warrant a picture. We were not fans at all! I boiled up the potatoes skin on, added some milk, salt and 1-2Tbl of wasabi paste…Yum! Here’s what I did with the broccoli


roasted broccoli
adapted from amateur gourmet

Put the broccoli florets on a cookie sheet. Toss with olive oil, salt and pepper. add 3-4 garlic cloves that are peeled and sliced and toss them in too. Roast in the oven 20 to 25 minutes, until “crisp-tender and the tips of some of the florets are browned.”

When it’s done, take it out of the oven, zest a lemon over the broccoli, squeeze the lemon juice over the broccoli, add freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
