These grilled tuna steaks with a tropical twist are a great way to enjoy a relaxing summer-evening cookout out with friends.



½ cup pineapple or other tropical fruit preserves

¼ cup hoisin sauce

2 tablespoons lime juice

1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro

1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger

1 teaspoon sesame oil

4 (6 ounce) tuna steaks, about 1 inch thick



To prepare marinade, combine preserves, hoisin, lime juice, cilantro, ginger, and sesame oil in a small bowl. Stir well.

Pour into a resealable plastic bag or glass bowl; toss tuna with marinade to coat. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil grate.

Remove tuna steaks from marinade, shake off excess, and discard remaining marinade. Cook on preheated grill 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.
