Winter Grilling

"Winter" is a term I use lightly to describe the months between November and February here in Dallas. The true beauty of this mild climate is being able to grill in say, December and January! We enjoyed the most wonderful dinner the other evening and it was SO easy, SO delicious, and SO good for us, I just had to share it!

Grilled Ahi Tuna
Serves 2
  • 2 one and a half or two inch thick tuna steaks (Buy the best grade steaks available it makes ALL the difference. Central Market has a wonderful selection as does Whole Foods)
  • Ahi Tuna Rub (Made by Colorado Spice : ) - -or at Central Market in the meat/seafood department)
  • Any type of grainy mustard you prefer.

Pat tuna steaks dry. Place rub in large dinner plate. Coat both sides and edges. Heat gas grill and once heated, set burners to medium heat. Grill tuna steaks on direct medium heat for 2 minutes per side. Then turn all burners off except the rear burner and grill over indirect heat for 3-4 minutes per side. The tuna steaks will be medium rare. For rarer tuna, reduce time on both types of heat by 1 minute. Enjoy with mustard and the roasted roma tomatoes featured earlier this week!
