The Fat Resistance Diet: 5 Bonus Recipes
Ginger Lime Grilled Tuna
Makes 2 servings
1 tablespoon peeled, minced fresh ginger or 1 teaspoon ground ginger
Juice of 1 lime
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper
12 ounces tuna steak, 1 inch thick
Olive oil spray
1/4 cup chopped fresh chives, for garnish
Whisk the ginger, lime juice, soy sauce, and extra virgin olive oil together in a shallow bowl. Add the pepper, then put the tuna in the bowl and turn to coat well. Cover the bowl and marinate the tuna in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
Heat an electric grill or grill pan. Spray the grill with olive oil. Remove the tuna from the marinade and place on the grill. Dispose of the remaining marinade. Cook the tuna over medium-high heat for 2 minutes, then turn. Cook for another 2 minutes, or until the inside is a nice light pink. You want to take the tuna off the grill before it's well done, because it continues to cook even after it's off the heat. Garnish with chives.
