    Tuna steaks are at their best when they are charred on a hot barbecue and marinated in chilli, garlic and lime. The perfect summer treat.

    This marinade was absolutely delicious!! I had to pan sear mine in a cast iron and topped with some reserved marinade at the end of cooking. I'm sure grilled would be ever better. I use this marinade now on lots of stuff.YUM!  -  29 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Won't let me edit my original post. The correct grill time is NOT on the recipe. Waaaay too long.  -  10 Jun 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Very tasty and easy to make. I added cilantro to the mix and topped it with a fresh cherry pepper after grilling. Spicy and delicious.  -  28 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
