Marinated Grilled Tuna Fish

tuna and tartare sauce

 

When I went to the farmers’ market I bought a tuna fish at a bargain price. I used to think that tuna was fished only in the Atlantic Sea but there is a type of tuna fish (thunnus alalunga – known as Albacore), which is fished in the Northern Aegean Sea.

Marinating tuna
This tuna fish has rather dark flesh and apart from the back bone the rest is boneless. I wanted to make a tasty and healthy dish, so I marinated it and grilled it and served it with quinoa salad and tartare sauce.

For those on a strict diet skip the tartare sauce.

    I love to grill fish. And your sauce sounds so flavorful and fragrant. What a lovely, light summer-y meal.

    Mmmm… wonderful tuna! Today I went to my fishmonger and saw a piece of tuna but finally I decided to get some fresh cod.

    I bet your tuna was exquisite 😀

    I've always been a big fan of great tuna recipes. Not just becuase of the great taste tuna has, but it's still a Very cost effective meat source. As a tuna recipe collector, I just wanted to thank you for contributing to my personal cook book with this recipe variation. 🙂
