    A lovely teriyaki-style tropical marinade for tuna steaks, perfect for a summer barbecue. Serve with lots of basmati rice and green salad.

    Serves: 4 

    • 1/2 cup pineapple or other tropical fruit jam
    • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
    • 2 tablespoons lime juice
    • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander
    • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
    • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
    • 4 tuna steaks, about 3cm thick

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:8min  ›  Extra time:1hour marinating  ›  Ready in:1hour23min 

    1. To prepare marinade combine jam, hoisin, lime juice, coriander, ginger and sesame oil in a small bowl. Stir well.
    2. Pour into a resealable plastic bag or glass bowl; toss tuna with marinade to coat. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
    3. Preheat barbecue for high heat and lightly oil grate.
    4. Remove tuna steaks from marinade, shake off excess and discard remaining marinade. Cook on preheated barbecue for 4 to 5 minutes per side Be careful not to overcook - the tuna should be lightly browned on the outside but still slightly pink in the middle. Serve immediately.
