This marvelous migratory fish lives in warmer waters and can often be found feeding in packs in the blue seas around Hawaii. Their favorite food are crustaceans, squid and cuttlefish. It is popularly known as the "Yellow-fin Tuna" because of its ... hey get this ... bright yellow back fin! On average, they are 70 to 200 pounds and have grown up to 600 pounds on trophy walls.
Gather the following items:
2 6-8 oz fresh yellow fin tuna steaks.
(Regular tuna if in a pinch)
2 Tbs Olive Oil
2 Tbs sherry-wine vinegar
2 tsp basil
2 tsp. fresh cracked black pepper
2 cloves fresh ground garlic
Juice from 1/2 lime
salt to taste
Rinse the tuna steaks and pat dry with paper towels. Place all ingredients into a plastic bag and mix thoroughly. Add the tuna steaks and allow to marinate 2 hours in refrigerator turning occasionally. Heat grill to medium heat. We suggest using a grill topper to reduce sticking to the grilling grate. Cook to medium-rare to medium. Don't over cook!
