Welcome back for another edition of Tasty Tuesday! Today I am featuring marinated tuna steaks. The flavors of the marinade made for a lovely fish dish. It is easy to make. Total time with preparation and cooking is 40 minutes. Are you ready to head into the kitchen?
2 – 1″ thick tuna steaks, 8 ounces each
1/4 cup of fresh squeezed orange juice
1/4 cup of low sodium soy sauce
2 TBS extra virgin olive oil
1 TBS fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 TBS dried parsley flakes
2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
1/4 tsp dried oregano, crushed
5 twists of fresh ground pepper
Take out your tuna steaks and place them in a zipper bag. Then in a measuring cup, add the remaining ingredients. Stir well to combine.Pour this over the tuna, seal the bag, and shake it to get the tuna well coated with the marinade. Place this back in the refrigerator.
After 30 minutes take out the tuna. In a glass baking pan, add the tuna and the marinade.Bake these at 350 for 5 minutes a side. Turning the steaks after 5 minutes, spoon some of the pan juices over the steaks.
Here it is when it is done.You want to have pink in the middle of your tuna steak, otherwise you will end up with a tough piece of fish.
Very tasty steaks! While these were very good, I think that the best way to cook these would be over a grill. Let me know if you try this recipe. Have a great week and stay tuned for another amazing recipe next week!
