    If fish steaks are large, cut into 6 serving pieces. Mix remaining ingredients except lime wedges in shallow glass or plastic dish or resealable plastic food-storage bag. Add fish; turn to coat. Cover dish or seal bag and refrigerate, turning fish once, at least 1 hour but no longer than 24 hours.

    Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Remove fish from marinade; reserve marinade. Cover and grill fish about 4 inches from medium heat 11 to 15 minutes, brushing 2 or 3 times with marinade and turning once, until fish flakes easily with fork. Discard any remaining marinade. Serve fish with lime wedges.

Expert Tips

  • For variety, try this recipe using swordfish or halibut steaks instead of the tuna steaks.
  • Arrange the cooked tuna steaks on a pretty platter. Garnish with lime peel curls and fresh cilantro.
  • Fresh or frozen tuna steaks have light to dark pink flesh. As the tuna cooks, the flesh lightens to a pale cream color.
