Grilled Barbecued Tuna, pondering the existence of dog

Did you hear about the agnostic, dyslexic, insomniac? He was awake all night pondering the existence of dog.

More about that later…..

First, another fish dish that mon mari likes, er, will eat.

If you get sushi-grade tuna you will definitely want to have this rare (it has to be graded to a higher standard so it is okay to eat raw).  Regular tuna we normally have medium.  We cook a 1 inch (2.5cm) thick piece for 10 minutes on hot charcoal, indirect heat, cover closed.

Grilled Barbecued Tuna

Total time: 30 minutes


  • 2 tuna steaks, 6oz (180gr) each
  • 2 tbs soy sauce
  • 2 tbs orange marmalade
  • 2 tbs ketchup
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 tsp rosemary
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder

Barbecued Tuna


  • Mix all ingredients for sauce and spoon over tuna. Allow to marinate for 10 – 15 minutes. 
  • To cook: Place on barbecue and spoon any remaining sauce on top. 
  • Cook, with the cover partially or fully closed, without turning, for 8 – 15 minutes, depending on how you want it done. 
  • Could also be roasted, 400F (200C) for about the same amount of time.

Note:  A grill basket, skillet or mat makes working with fish easier.

First, the disclaimer: I am not making any statements for or against any religions or religious beliefs. I’m merely making observations; no blasphemies intended.

It is the general consensus that God is male.

Regardless of your personal beliefs, if you look at organized (and not organized) religions throughout history the principal deity is male.

He could be the head of a group of lesser gods and goddess (Zeus, Jupiter, Odin).

He could be the head of the creation family (Father Sky, Mother Earth; God, the Father)

He could be the all-seeing, all knowing, benevolent (or not) Creator.

Regardless of the religion, the principal deity is always (in the religions I am familiar with) referred to as Him or He; not Her or She.

As far as I know, there is no definitive knowledge of the gender of any of the principal deities. Long tradition has decreed the use of He and Him.

Actually, not that I ponder it, there may be languages that have a gender neutral pronoun…. I digress….

A long, long time ago, back in the 70’s during the height of the Women’s Movement, the tradition was questioned.

There were T-shirts, posters, etc. with a variety of slogans referring to God in the feminine…. using the pronouns of She and Her.

It didn’t last.

However, I now have, what is to me, adequate proof, that God is, indeed, male.

If God was female, tomatoes would ripen at the same time as lettuce so I could have a nice, fresh, complete garden salad.

I rest my case.

Oh… I picked the first lettuce today.

  1. Well, I can’t be going with orange marmalade on tuna but tomato & lettuce ripe at the same time, yes a woman would have done that.

  2. Tanna, actually, it just adds a touch of sweetness – but not too much. Strangely, I’m not a fan of orange in anything, but I liked this. The hubs loves orange.

    Joanne, sometimes they can be challenging to feed LOL

    Zoomie, really! That reminds me…. I haven’t had a good BLT in ages. I need to find some decent bacon!
