Barbeque Tuna Steaks

There is nothing better than fresh tuna fish steaks. Don’t do too much with them in the way of preparation as they are so good on their own. However, this hot salsa goes great with tuna steaks when barbecued. Like a beef steak, tuna can be cooked rare to well done, for a rare steak cooking time is a little over 2 minutes each side.

You will need (serves 3-4):

2 large fresh tuna steaks
6 garlic cloves
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon hot paprika
Salt and pepper to season

How to cook:

1.Grill the un-peeled garlic cloves until they become soft
2.Allow to cool, then cut the end off each garlic clove and squeeze the garlic flesh into a bowl.
3.Add the paprika, olive oil salt and pepper to the bowl and mix well.
4.Place the tuna steaks into a shallow dish, pour over the above sauce and leave to marinade for about half an hour.

5.Cook on a barbecue or grill for about 2-4 minutes each side, depending on taste.

6.Serve with a salad and boiled potatoes
