Barbecued Tuna with Honey Glaze


There is so much lovely fresh fish at the supermarket and it is a great and healthy choice for the barbecue.The dish doesn’t take long to prepare and it is totally packed with taste.

Ingredients (serves 4):

4 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger root
Small bunch fresh coriander, chopped
450 g (16 oz) tuna fillets

For the honey glaze:
4 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh coriander


In a medium bowl, mix together olive oil, lime juice, balsamic vinegar, garlic, ginger and coriander. Add tuna fillets, and turn to coat evenly. Let marinate for several hours in the refrigerator.

Preheat barbecue for high heat. In a small bowl, mix together honey, 2 tablespoons olive oil, and 2 tablespoons coriander; set aside.

When charcoals are at a lower heat, place tuna fillets on the lightly oiled cooking grate. Close lid, and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Flip fillets over carefully, and close lid again for another minute to sear fish. Open lid, and continue cooking until barely done, frequently adding the rest of the marinade to the fish. When the fish is almost cooked through, brush the honey glaze over both sides of fish, and remove from heat.
