2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons lime juice

1 clove garlic minced

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro

10 oz tuna steak 


Fresh Salsa

1 medium avocado pitted ,diced

6 grape tomatoes , diced

2 tablespoon minced fresh jalapeno pepper

1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro

2 tablespoon lime juice

1 teaspoon garlic powder

Salt and pepper to taste(about 1 tsp salt and ½ tsp pepper in my opinion)



1.    Make the tuna: In a small shallow bowl, whisk oil, lime juice, garlic, salt, pepper, and cilantro until smooth. Place tuna steaks in bowl, turning to coat both sides. Let tuna stand in marinade 15-20 minutes.

2.    Remove tuna from marinade and discard marinade. Heat a grill to high heat and grill tuna steaks 2 minutes on each side (tuna should be a nice pink inside---do not overcook). 

3.    Once cooked set aside to sit for 5-10 mins.

4.    Make the salsa: In a small bowl, combine all salsa ingredients. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
