Grilled Citrus and Herb Tuna Steaks and a GIVE AWAY

by Joanne on May 20, 2009

Ted really enjoys grilling.  I enjoy it when Ted grills.  The kitchen suffers a minimal amount of mess. 

Tonight we are enjoying 2 beautiful tuna steaks, sent up from South Carolina.

Grilled Citrus and Herb Tuna


  • (2) 6 oz Tuna steaks, about 1 1/2 ” thick each
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 TBS oregano
  • 1 TBS basil
  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 1 TBS lime juice
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 2 cloves of garlic, cut in 1/2
  • 1 tsp salt

Mix all of the above (except Tuna steaks) and pour over tuna steaks to marinate for 1/2 hour to 1 hour*.

*Tuna is more dense and will handle the additional marinating time, better than a thin, delicate fish.

Heat grill to high heat and cook 4 to 5 minutes per side depending on how well you enjoy your tuna cooked. *See note.

We had our fish with mashed Kabosha Squash.  I simply added 1 tsp orange zest and 1/2 tsp lemon juice and lime juice. 1 TBS of Veggie Broth was added and the top was drizzled with olive oil when put in the oven to keep warm while the rest of the dinner was prepared.

*Note:  We made the mistake of cooking the tuna too long. It was dry and the squash was a little dry as well. I quickly made a sauce to help the dinner out a bit:  1/4 cup Veggie broth + 1/2 TBS lemon and 1/2 TBS lime juice, 1 tsp oregano and 1 tsp basil, salt and pepper.  Added a little olive oil after heating the previous mixture 1 1/2 minutes in the microwave.  It had some “tang” but it worked.


Surprise! Surprise!   What a wonderful gift received from Bob’s Red Mill.   They sent 3 boxes of Gluten Free products.  GF Cornmeal, GF Corn Flour, and GF Corn Grits.  They have a new manufacturing facility which has allowed them to expand their gluten free product line.  The samples are complimentary.    We gave 2 of each to one of Teddy’s friends, Paul, who is doing a bang up job grooming our property.  He and his fiance’ just had a baby so he was so pleased to take these fine products home.


I’d like to send one each of the three varieties to any one of you who might be interested in trying them.  Please simply leave a comment and, depending on how many responses, I will put numbers in a “hat” and send them free of charge to the lucky “number” that Ted draws.  The products came with recipe pages such as GF Cornbread, Corn Cakes, Lemon Poppyseed Layer Cake, Grilled Tomato Polenta with Gorgonzola,  Polenta Stuffed Peppers, Brazilian Corn Cookies, and Gluten Free Corn Pancakes.  Are you up for it?  Please leave a comment and pass the word along.  We will do a drawing on Monday, May 25th.

Have a great Wednesday night!

    Hi, what a nice thing to do!!!! We are not currently a gluten-free family, but I have heard that a gluten-free diet can improve mental health of someone who is sensitive to gluten, so I’ve been thinking of trying some things to see if the change would help my DH….I hope I win!!!!

      Nice idea, we wouldn’t mind giving gluten free a try. I would like to see if anyone notices the difference.

                                Interesting recipe–might try it for my husband. I haven’t eaten [meat &] fish for over ten years, however. I have used Bob’s Gluten-free products since I have a gluten allergy. I am impressed with the quality. My local food Coop carries many of their products.

                                  Hey sign me up for the giveaway. I eat fish also, especially swordfish. It has alot of protein, and so my body thinks it is meat.
