Caribbean Marinated Ahi Tuna Steaks

Fish... It’s good for you. It’s not our favorite thing in the world. But, when I saw this recipe on Joelen’s blog, I knew we had to try it. This was delicious!!! By far the favorite fish dish we’ve had. We paired it with a simple yellow rice and had a healthy, filling meal.

Oh & the tuna steak was in the shape of a heart. So cute! Try it out, you’ll love it. J

Caribbean Marinated Ahi Tuna Steaks

1/4 cup pineapple juice
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon lime juice
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 teaspoon ground crushed red pepper chili flakes
4 (4 ounce) tuna steaks

In a large non-reactive dish, mix together the pineapple juice, soy sauce, olive oil, lime juice, parsley, garlic, cilantro, and crushed red pepper chili flakes. Place the tuna steaks in the marinade and turn to coat.

Cover, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Preheat grill or grill pan 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.
