Asian Grilled Tuna

I love fish so I’m always trying to come up with some new recipes that will wow my family and that I’ll be able to use in my culinary classes. So the other day I picked up some wonderful fresh tuna to prepare on the grill.

When I got home I looked in my refrigerator and cabinet to try and figure out just how I was going to prepare it. I decided to marinate the tuna so it had an asian flair to it. It turned out delicious! It had a bit of a kick to it but everyone gobbled it up and loved it!

My first thought was to make a Tuna Nicoise since I was in the mood for something light and healthy. So after creating this dish I placed it on a bed of Arugula to keep it light. I am working on a sauce to go over it but it actually tasted amazing without anything.

Here’s what my marinade had in it:

Olive Oil
Minced Garlic
Cracked Red Pepper Flakes
Red Wine Vinegar
Sriracha Sauce
Oyster Sauce
Sliced Green Onions
Lime Juice
Minced Ginger
Fresh ground pepper

Serving it with the arugula helped to cut the heat. Since I didn’t prepare a sauce I used a bit of greek yogurt which tamed it down while everyone else just ate it plain. However, I think serving this on a bed of mashed potatoes or having a nice smooth sauce that had similar asian flavors would be a great compliment to this recipe.

In a couple weeks I should have it down perfect. Of course to really cut the heat you could always limit the amount of Sriracha you add.
