Mango Madness Yellowfin Tuna pellet grill recipe BBQ smokerMango Madness Yellowfin Tuna

Patti and I have set one night a week just for us. It’s our date night. We usually put something special on our Louisiana 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 burning stove, 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…

Ken was at the market and saw the words tuna and steak on the same package. A combination we had to try. To bring out the fresh tuna flavor we grilled it rare for the delicious Ahi tuna magic we seasoned it with Louisiana Grills Mango Magic seasoning. We served it with fresh green beans quick cooked on our Louisiana Grill/Smoker and packaged fried rice. It was so quick and easy the fish was done before the rice.

As a special treat we were given some of Lumberjack’s new “Paris-Bordeaux Rosemary” wood pellets. Paris-Bordeaux Rosemary has a savory resinous flavor and aroma. It has a tea-like aroma and a piney flavor.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 8 minutes @ 350 degrees (177c)
Grill: Louisiana Wood Pellet Grill/Smoker
Pellets: Lumberjack Paris-Bordeaux Rosemary

Ingredients: Mango Magic Yellowfin Tuna

Directions: Mango Magic Yellowfin Tuna

Sprinkle tuna steaks generously on both sides with seasoning and let it come to room temperature. Preheat grill to 350 degrees (177c), when your grill grates are hot put your tuna on them for 4 minutes per side with a quarter turn at 2 minutes for those nice grill marks. You are looking for an internal temperature of 125 degrees (52c).

4 Minutes per Side with a Quarter Turn at 2 Minutes on the Grill Grates

 Cooking Directions: Louisiana Wood Pellet Grill/Smoker

To prepare the grill for cooking, check your pellet supply – top off or change flavors as needed. Scrape grill grates off. Set the temperature to 450 degrees and press the “Start” button. Give the grill about 15 minutes to reach temperature and the grates to burn clean.

Note: You can set the start temperature anywhere you want. I do 450 (230c) for a quick cleaning burn.

So after the grill comes up to temp and burns clean turn it back down to 350 degrees (177c). When your grill grates are hot put your tuna on them for 4 minutes per side with a quarter turn at 2 minutes for those nice grill marks. You are looking for an internal temperature of 125 degrees (52c). 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 Louisiana, Green Mountain, Royall, Memphis, Traeger wood pellet grills, Char Griller side box smoker, Saber, Charmglow, Char-Broil, The Big Easy, Pacific Living Outdoor Oven, 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 even do 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,
Ken & Patti
