Grilled Tuna a la Scooter
6 - 8 fresh tuna steaks, cut about 3/4 to 1 inch thick
Salt and fresh ground pepper
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup butter
Prepare charcoal or gas grill. Melt butter in pan and add soy sauce. Dip tuna steaks in butter/soy sauce mixture, sprinkle with salt and pepper and grill over medium-high heat for 4 – 7 minutes per side. While grilling, baste tuna often with the butter/soy mixture. Cooking time will vary depending on the heat of the fire and the thickness of the tuna steaks. The tuna should still be a little pink in the middle when done. This recipe is simple but very tasty. The butter/soy sauce baste really compliments the flavor of the fresh tuna. My good friend Scooter came up with this recipe and told me to keep it a secret. I’m sure he won’t mind if I share it with a few subscribers; besides, it is really too good to keep secret.
The Skinny: Do not substitute for the butter. You can use reduced sodium soy sauce if you wish.
