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.
