Sesame Tuna, Grilled

Sesame Tuna, Grilled

I love doing tuna on the barbecue. Even when it’s over-cooked, as this was, it’s still delicious.


  • 12oz (360gr) tuna, roast or steaks
  • 3 tbs hoisin sauce
  • 1 tbs soy sauce
  • 1 tbs Balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 2 tsp sesame seeds


  • Mix hoisin, soy sauce, vinegar and oil. Spoon 2/3’s over tuna.
  • Allow to marinate for 10 – 15 minutes. 
  • To cook: For 1″ thick steaks cook on barbecue for 5 – 7 minutes per side.
  • For a thicker piece, cook for 8 – 12 minutes and use a thermometer. We didn’t turn it.
  • When done, remove, spoon rest of sauce over and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  • Let rest a few minutes before slicing and serving.


Fish on the grill cooks quickly. Use a thermometer….
