Citrus Ahi Tuna Steaks, Smokin’ on Your Gasser
Citrus Ahi Tuna Steaks Smokin’ on Your Gasser

 

Citrus Ahi Tuna Steaks Smokin’ on Your Gasser was a quick and easy recipe on our gas grill. Something a bit different for tailgating. Tons of flavor with only three marinade ingredients. Your friends will adore you as a “Grill Master”. Easy to serve in a slider bun, on a plate or wrapped in a tortilla. A real treat with a “Kiss of Smoke” using a Wedgie.

Patti and I have set one night a week just for us. It’s our date night. We usually put something special on our Green Mountain Wood Pellet Grill/Smoker but sometimes we cook inside. We always eat outside on our patio where it is very comfortable with a rainforest theme.  Wood Pellet Patio Heater, little lights, candles, lanterns and surround sound. We enjoy a little wine, or strawberry margaritas using frozen strawberries for ice, good food, music and sometimes a dance or two…

Our Ingredients

Cooking Directions: Citrus Ahi Tuna Steaks

Place tuna in “Marinator” or plastic bag. Whisk marinade ingredients and pour over tuna.
Marinate at least 3 hours.

Preheat the grill to medium high heat and light your Wedgie. Spray the grill grate with cooking spray, we used “Duck Fat” (see our store).

Season the tuna with the Chef of the Future and place your Ahi Tuna directly onto the grill for about 2 minutes per side.

Note that your cooking time will vary due to the thickness of your tuna.

You don’t cook Ahi Tuna to this, but U.S.D.A. safe is 145* (62c). Keep in mind that the fish will continue cooking for another 5 to 10 degrees after you pull it off the grill. I use a Maverick ProTemp Instant Read Thermometer for checking meat temps.

Note: I get a lot of questions about the kind of pellets you can use with a recipe. Keep in mind that a recipe is just an outline. Some you need to follow closely like when you are making bread, but most you can do anything you can dream, our favorite way to cook. Feel free to mix and match the pellets until you find a combination you really like. Also, you are only smoking at temps less than 250 degrees (122c), anything higher is cooking and there will not be much if any smoke, so it does not matter what kind of pellet you are using.

About our Recipes

We do our recipes on our patio where we have a lineup of grills, including Green Mountain, Uuni Wood Fired Pizza Oven, Sawtooth, Louisiana, Royall, Memphis, Traeger pellet grills, Char Griller side box smoker, Saber, Charmglow, Char-Broil, The Big Easy, Lodge Sportsman’s, Brinkman and Weber. I call it our “Wall of Grill”. Our grilling styles are healthy and low fat and will fit pelletheads, gas, natural wood and even charcoal purists. Almost any of our recipes can be done on any kind of good BBQ.

The important thing to keep in mind is TIME & TEMPERATURE. You can do our recipes on any grill, even some of them in the oven or crock pot, but, then you lose all the flavors you get from cooking outdoors. But sometimes it does rain.

Remember that a recipe is simply an outline; it is not written in stone. Don’t be afraid to make changes to suit your taste. Take it and run with it….

Live your Passion and Do What You Love,
Ken & Patti
