Easy Grilled Tuna

Monday my refrigerator was pretty bare, so dinner was simple but fun. I’ll try and include more posts like this, instead of sticking only to full blown “recipes” – since I realize we are all busy people, and simple dinner ideas are a good thing to have! With that being said, the George Foreman grill is seriously a great tool for quick dinners, and along with my electric griddle and crock pot, an invaluable gadget in my kitchen arsenal.

Anyway, I thawed a package of tuna steaks that I got from Trader Joe’s in the refrigerator overnight. While the grill heated up I quickly marinated them in a zip-lock with a combination of random but intuitive things, giving them a nice sweet and savory touch of flavors.

  • coconut aminos
  • ginger powder
  • cayenne pepper
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • rosemary
  • thyme
  • coconut milk (Trader Joe’s Light)
  • stone  ground mustard

I stuck them on the grill until they were cooked through. If you like, you can even put some additional mustard on after it’s done. For side dishes, I just did some cucumber salad (an easy mixture of cucumber, celery, and onion – with coconut aminos, olive oil, and apple cider vinegar) and some ginger seaweed sauerkraut stuff I got at Wild By Nature up the block. I love fermented foods.
