Grilled tuna steaks

Try our detailed guide on how to properly grill tuna. Plus, apart from the tuna, you only need oil and salt for this!


  • 4 tuna steaks, each weighing 170 to 225 g and 3 to 5 cm thick
  • rapeseed or other neutral oil
  • salt to taste
  • ground black pepper (optional)


  1. Set all gas grill burners to high temperature.
  2. Put the grill grate in place, cover the grill and let it preheat for 5 minutes.
  3. Clean and oil the grill grate.
  4. Dry the tuna steaks well with paper towels and lightly coat them with oil.
  5. Just before grilling, season the steaks with salt and possibly pepper.
  6. Then place on the hot side of the grill.
  7. Grill the tuna until the first side is well browned, 1 to 2 minutes.
  8. If the fish sticks, try gently lifting it from the bottom using a thin metal spatula or the prongs of a fork pushed down between the grill grates.
  9. We turn the tuna and repeat on the other side.
  10. For ideal rare doneness, grill the fish long enough to brown on all sides, and not longer.
  11. If we want to have the tuna beautifully rare, the sides of the steaks should be purple, with the beige color starting to appear from above and below.
  12. If we want them to be done a little more, we wait until more beige color appears from both sides.
  13. We do not recommend grilling tuna steaks beyond medium-rare.
  14. Enjoy it!

A few final tips on grilling fish

  • Place slices of butter on the finished fish and take the taste experience to a higher level.
  • The fish does not need to be marinated for a long time. Fish seasoned only with pepper and salt also taste great.
  • Potatoes and some suitable dip are suitable side dishes for grilled fish.
  • Among the most suitable fish for grilling are those with a higher fat content . This is, for example, mackerel, tuna or trout, but many other fish are suitable.
  • We choose the meat as fresh as possible. However, quality fish can also be purchased deep frozen. In this case, we check the water content in the package.
