Saturday Night Specials

I should save this recipe it post it on low cal Wednesday. But is was so good I could not wait to share it with the world. (HaHa) We love these steaks low fat and nearly carb-free entree. This is a recipe you can whip up after work it is so quick for week night meals. I just made a tossed salad and side dish while the steaks marinate, and dinner is ready in no time. I know a lot of people haven't tried cooking Charlie oh I mean tuna steaks. The texture is like a beef steak and it does not even taste at all like fish. If you give it a try for the first time come back and let me know what you think. We have tuna steaks at least once a month, each time prepared a different way. I can't say which one is my favorite I seem to like them all. One serving equals 2l8 calories.
Grilled Tuna Steaks

2/3 cup white wine or chicken broth
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoon dried oregano
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoon of steak seasoning salt
6 tuna steaks (6 ounce each)

In a bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Pour 1/2 cup marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; add tuna steaks. Seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 30 minutes, turning once or twice. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade for basting.
Coat grill rack with nonstick cooking spray before starting the grill. Drain and discard marinade. Grill tuna, covered, over medium-hot heat 3 minutes. Turn; baste with reserved marinade. Grill 2-4 minutes longer or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Before serving, brush tuna with remaining marinade.

I love tuna. I love it. And Cheryl, it is a fish, it is food! Don't be afraid! Worse thing you don't like it (which I promise WILL NOT happen) and you don't make it again... right!

We love grilled tuna in our house. This is a great recipe. I just wish tuna steaks were less expensive.

Unfortunately the last time we had tuna steak we got ill so we haven't tried it since. Wonder how this recipe would work with salmon?

Fresh tuna is one thing I've never been tempted to cook. I think basically that is because all of the cooking shows say you have to cook it to the rare state or it will become tough and dry. I've seen enough (things like pin worms) in raw fish that I would NEVER consider eating it raw (and that especially goes for salmon).

I'm going to have to try this. I've been wanting to try tuna steaks for a while, but haven't gotten to them yet, they look yummy!

So, I had flash frozen tuna steaks that I've been trying to figure out what to do with. Well, I think I've found it.

I'll give this a try tomorrow and let you know how it goes!
