You might not know how to select the best tasting tuna steaks that are available at your local super market. To start off you should make sure that the tuna steaks that you buy are dolphin friendly and are not frozen. If you purchase the non frozen ethical tuna steak then you can be certain that it will have the best flavor after you cook it. Marinated tuna steak recipes are the best recipe option, the marinade will be soaked in the steak over a few hours which will make it taste even better.

I recently purchased these lovely, wild albacore tuna steaks. They are not as expensive as your regular yellowfin tuna steaks, I almost prefer albacore because I find them more tender and flavorful. I marinate the steaks in a mixture of garlic, jalapeños, lemon, parsley, olive oil, salt and pepper for about 30 minutes before cooking. Then I throw them on the grill for 3 minutes each side and yummy, healthy dinner is ready!

Albacore Tuna Steaks
3 cloves of garlic (grated (using a microplane))
1 jalapeño (minced)
1 lemon (zested and juiced)
A handful of flat-leaf parsley (finely chopped)
1/8 cup organic olive oil
Salt and pepper (as desired)
Mix the above ingredients together to make the marinade. Gently coat the tuna steaks with the marinade; cover and marinate for about 30 minutes.
In a non-stick pan on medium-high heat, sear the tuna steaks for about 3 minutes on each side, for medium rare (timing will depend on how think the steaks are).
