Seared Tuna Steaks
Wood Pellet Recommendation
1 tbsp Cilantro, Fresh
1/2 Lime, cut into wedges
1 Scallion, sliced thin
1 tbsp Grapeseed Oil
1 Tsp Louisiana Grills Sweet & Tangy Rub
1 1/2 lb Tuna Steaks
For seafood, we recommend the light, smoky flavor of our Pennsylvania Cherry Hardwood Pellets.
- Fire up your Louisiana Grills pellet grill on SMOKE mode and allow the pellets to catch fire in the burn pot.
- Once a fire is established, preheat your grill to 425°F. If using a gas or charcoal grill, set it up for medium-high heat.
Brush both sides of tuna steaks with grapeseed oil, then season with the Sweet & Tangy Rub.
- Place tuna steaks on the grill. Cook 1 ½ minutes per side. Remove from the grill, then open the sear slide and sear tuna steaks over open flame, an additional 30 seconds per side.
- Remove tuna steaks from the grill, slice thin, and serve with cilantro, lime, and scallions.
For a leaner fish with milder taste, opt for Yellowfin Tuna when choosing your steaks.
