Pacific Tuna

Wine recommendation: This switch-hitting dish will pair well with a rich Chardonnay or a svelte Pinot Noir.

  • 4 yellowfin tuna steaks
  • Marinade:
  • 2 tablespoons grated ginger
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1/3 cup dry sherry or pineapple juice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro

Combine marinade ingredients in a food processor. Reserve marinade in a large freezer bag. Seal tuna steaks in separate freezer bags; keep iced in cooler until ready to use.

Marinate tuna in freezer bag for 1-2 hours. Remove tuna from marinade and grill over hot fire, 3 minutes per side for medium rare (time will vary depending on steaks’ thickness).
