Ingredients

thick cut pieces of tuna, one per person

1/4 cup olive oil

2 T red wine vinegar

1 T soy sauce

1 tsp. garlic powder

1 tsp. fish rub or seafood seasoning

1 tsp. hot pepper flakes

Directions

Combine marinade ingredients.Put tuna in zip loc bag and pour marinade over.Marinate in refrigerator 1-3 hours. (As a general rule, don’t marinate fish too long or the acidy ingredient in the marinade starts to “cook” the fish.)To cook, oil your grill with a piece of paper towel dipped in olive oil, then preheat charcoal or gas grill to high. (You can only hold your hand there about 2 seconds when the grill is high.)Put fish into a colander placed in the sink and drain marinade off, discarding the marinade.Grill fish 4-6 minutes on each side. (Use this as a guide: 4 minutes per side for medium rare, 5 minutes per side for medium, six minutes per side for well done.) If you want those lovely grill marks, be sure grill is very hot, lay tuna diagonally on the grill, wait three minutes, rotate, wait three minutes and cook less time on the other side.<
