Grilled tuna steak marinated in Mexican sauce

Serves: 4

Tuna is one of the more popular fish on the market. It is incredibly delicious, especially when cooked to medium full of flavor and great texture. Tuna is best served medium/rare to retain juiciness; you want to see a pink center. If you like tuna very rare, make sure to purchase sushi grade tuna to ensure that you can eat it almost raw.

4 fresh tuna steaks


Salt and pepper

1 fresh lemon

1 cup Mexican marinade


Marinate tuna in Mexican marinade for 30 minutes

Grill on high 3 minutes per side

Let cool before you slice or serve it whole


Mexican marinade

Yields:  ¾ cups

This marinade is great for fish and chicken. We tried it on skinless dark chicken that we grilled with skewers and as a marinade for tuna. Both were delicious.


½ cup canned tomato sauce

¼ cup lemon or lime juice

1 tablespoon cumin

2 teaspoons chili powder

1 teaspoon salt and pepper

2 tablespoons honey or agave nectar


Mix ingredients together in container.

Refrigerate until ready to serve.


Mexican Potato Salad



You’ll be sure to love this creamy, slightly spicy potato salad.


8 Idaho potatoes

1 jalapeno, seeded and finely diced

1 avocado, cubed

2 teaspoons cumin

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon black pepper

½ cup non-dairy sour cream

¼ cup mayonnaise

¼ cup vinegar

1/8 cup lemon juice

2 teaspoons sugar


Fill a large pot with cold water.

Place potatoes in pot with cold water and bring to a boil.

Lower heat to simmer and cook until potatoes are fork tender.

Combine dressing ingredients (taste and add extra non-dairy sour cream if necessary).

While potatoes are still hot, peel and cut into cubes and place in serving dish.

Slice jalapeno in half, take out seeds, and finely dice, then combine with dressed potatoes.

Top with diced avocado when ready to serve.

    Oh-I can't wait to try out this delicious recipe for tuna steaks. We love grilled tuna and I usually just sear it with some salt and pepper; this mexican marinade seems like an unusual tasty marinade. Love the potato salad too! Thanks
