I’ve turned my man love into a bit of a foodie and it is AWESOME. You should see this man work a knife now. One of his fishing buddies stopped by Sunday night with fresh tuna and since we still haven’t gone to the grocery store it made our Monday dinner pretty obvious. How perfect is fresh fish after hot yoga? He went internet hunting and found this little gem of a marinade recipe.
Marinated Tuna Steak from allrecipes.com.
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 (4 ounce) tuna steaks
In a large non-reactive dish, mix together the orange juice, soy sauce, olive oil, lemon juice, parsley, garlic, oregano, and pepper. Place the tuna steaks in the marinade and turn to coat. Cover, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
Preheat grill for high heat.
Lightly oil grill grate. Cook the tuna steaks for 5 to 6 minutes, then turn and baste with the marinade. Cook for an additional 5 minutes, or to desired doneness. Discard any remaining marinade.
He omitted the garlic because I’m not a fan (and I return the favor with onions for him) and he added cilantro because he knows how much I love it. He’s a good man. He and this marinade are keepers.
