Orange peel brings a burst of citrus flavor to moist tuna steaks seasoned with spicy black pepper.

Ingredients

1/4
cup butter, softened
1
tablespoon finely chopped green onion (1 medium)
1
teaspoon grated orange peel
4
teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/2
teaspoon celery salt
1/2
teaspoon cracked black pepper
4
tuna steaks, 1 inch thick (about 1 1/4 lb)
4
green onions, trimmed

Directions

  • 1 Heat gas or charcoal grill. In small bowl, mix butter, 1 tablespoon chopped green onion and the orange peel; set aside.
  • 2 In another small bowl, mix oil, celery salt and pepper. Brush oil mixture on both sides of tuna steaks and over whole green onions.
  • 3 Place tuna on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 8 to 10 minutes, turning once, until tuna flakes easily with fork and is slightly pink in center. Add onions to grill during last 5 minutes of grilling; turn occasionally. Cover tuna and let stand 5 minutes before serving. Serve tuna and onions with dollops of orange butter.
Tips  

Celery salt adds a nice flavor to the tuna, but plain salt can be substituted.

If you have leftover cooked tuna, flake it and use in your favorite tuna salad recipe. Delicious!
