Grilled Tuna is one of the most healthy meals you could serve. It is high in Omega 3, it is also a tasty fish as well.

Remember that you should buy from fish dealers that only sell responsibly caught fish – that means no dredging or large trawler type companies preferably.  We need to look after our fish resources.

We need to look after our reserves for the next generation!

Preheat broiler or grill. Put water on to boil in medium saucepan.

While water is boiling, place olive oil in shallow bowl or casserole dish. Coat tuna steaks in oil, season with salt and pepper, then cover dish and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

When water is boiling, add quinoa to pan and simmer for about 20 minutes, or until water is absorbed. While quinoa is cooking, grill fish approximately 7 minutes and drizzle with lime juice.
