Grilled Tuna with Lemon

Total time: 30 minutes
     If you get sushi-grade tuna you will definitely want to have this rare (it has to be graded to a higher standard so it is okay to eat raw).  Regular tuna we normally have medium.  Well done tend to make it rather dry.  This is a simple preparation, finish with a bit of sea salt.

Grilled Tuna with Lemon Ingredients:


Note:  A grill basket, skillet or mat makes working with fish easier.

General Technical Details and Disclaimer:

Note:  The nutrition info assumes 25% of the marinade is eaten. Yellowfin tuna is significantly lower in fat and calories than bluefin.

Measurements are actual measurements used for calculation. If there are no values the nutritional numbers were simply too small.

I try to be accurate, but I do not guarantee it.  I use 'grams' as the unit of weight; with an approximate conversion to ounces.
