another fresh seafood idea
Keep dinner simple and quick with grilled tuna topped with a zesty lime butter. Tuna is a high-quality protein and a good source for omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids serve as a heart guard and studies have confirmed the benefits of eating fish to cardiovascular health. The adult daily requirement for omega-3 fatty acid is estimated to be 300 to 400 milligrams a day.
- 4 tuna steaks, about 1 inch thick
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- freshly ground black pepper
Prepare Lime Butter and set aside.
Brush steaks with oil on both sides. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill about 4 inches from coals until done on one side, about 6 to 7 minutes. Turn and repeat on other side. Spread with Lime Butter. Serves 4.
- 3/4 cup margarine or butter, softened
- 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- 3 teaspoons lime zest
In small bowl, combine margarine, juice and lime zest. Set aside for flavors to blend. Serve over cooked steaks.
