asian grilled tuna teriyaki plated 2

One of the quickest ways to a healthy summer-time dinner is fish on the grill.  Impressive enough for company, but simple enough for any night of the week.

A personal favorite of mine is Grilled Sesame Teriyaki Tuna.  I find yellowfin tuna a great option for this recipe – it’s got a nice mild flavor and holds up great on the grill.

Grilled Sesame Teriyaki Tuna

Asian Marinade

4   Tbls.    Stonewall Kitchen Organic Sesame Teriyaki* (it’s also gluten-free!)
1   Tbls.    Tamari (gluten free)
2   Tbls.    White Vinegar
1   Tbls.    Napa Valley Naturals toasted Sesame Oil*
2   tsp.     Bourbon Barrel Smoked Sesame Seeds*

4              6 oz. pieces of yellowfin tuna, 1 inch thick
½  Cup    Stonewall Kitchen Organic Sesame Teriyaki Sauce*
2   tsp.    Bourbon Barrel Smoked Sesame Seeds*

In a bowl, add all the marinade ingredients together and whisk until thoroughly blended.  Place tuna steaks in a shallow baking dish and pour marinade of tuna.  Gently turn tuna to coat.  Chill for 30 mins – 1 hour.

Preheat grill.  Once grill is hot, place tuna on grill.  Grill for 5-6 minutes on each side or tuna is just opaque. (Only flip once to avoid sticking).  DISCARD LEFTOVER MARINADE.

Drizzle tuna with Stonewall Kitchen Organic Sesame Teriyaki and garnish with smoked sesame seeds. Tent and left rest for 5 minutes.
