What's this?

This first-rate fish gets a quick soak in sesame oil, soy sauce, and spicy red pepper flakes to start, then basks in hardwood smoke, supercharging the marinade. Grill it up right and throw it on a bun with brown sugared pineapple and creamy avocado for a macho meal, grilled for the gods.

Ingredients

  • 1 Teaspoon sesame oil

  • 1 Teaspoon soy sauce

  • 1 Teaspoon red pepper flakes

  • 1 Teaspoon garlic, crushed

  • 1 Teaspoon onion powder

  • 2 Whole Tuna Filet, 8 oz each, sushi grade

  • To Taste pineapple

  • To Taste brown sugar

  • 12 Whole Buns, Slider

  • 2 Tablespoon mayonnaise

  • As Needed lettuce

  • As Needed Avocado, Sliced

Steps

  • 1

    In a mixing bowl, whisk together the sesame oil, soy sauce, pepper flakes, garlic, and onion powder. Pour the mixture over the tuna filets, and refrigerate.

    When ready to cook, set temp to High (450F) and preheat, lid closed (10 to 15 minutes).
  • 3

    To sear, place the filets on the front edge of the grill until there are grill marks, then flip and move to the center and cook 3-5 more minutes. Dont overcook it! Tuna is best when it is medium rare, to medium.

    While the tuna is cooking, sprinkle the pineapple with brown sugar and grill towards the front of the grill until you see grill marks.
