It's hard to tell which is better in this, the tuna or the sauce! The sauce is even better if done the previous day, but who knows when you're going to catch a tuna? No kidding, if you can do it, it gets no better. Otherwise, get the freshest you can get from your fish monger.

Directions

  1. Combine the lemon juice with 1/2 cup olive oil in a sealable plastic bag; seal and shake. Add the tuna steaks and store in refrigerator to marinate while the grill preheats.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  3. Whisk the brown mustard, mustard powder, sugar, vinegar, and 1/3 cup olive oil together in a bowl; stir in the dill.
  4. Remove the tuna from the marinade and discard the marinade; cook the steaks on the preheated grill until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 6 minutes per side. Drizzle the steaks with the mustard and dill sauce to serve.

The marinade is basic at best, and I recommend using one w/ some soy, and ginger added to the basic EVOO Lemon mixture. Now the dill sauce is simply amazing. 4 stars for the sauce alone.

I enjoyed this recipe. I did not have white wine vinegar, so I used red wine vinegar. Also, I only had 1 tbsp dill. Overall, I thought the recipe was a 4-4.5. My husband didn't like it quite as much and gave it a 3.5-4. I would make it again. I had frozen tuna steaks, so I made them medium well. If I had fresh tuna steaks, I would have done medium rare, which would have improved the overall taste in my opinion.

Made this for dinner tonight and the entire family loved it. Had to make one substitution, stone ground mustard for the spicy brown mustard. The marinade is enough for more than 2 tuna steaks, I had about 8, and it turned out fine. I will definitely make this again!
