    1. In a large bowl, combine orange juice, olive oil, oregano, parsley, salt and pepper. Mix well. Place the tuna steaks in the bowl, turn to coat both sides with marinade; cover and refrigerate 30 minutes.
    2. Preheat a barbecue for medium-high heat.
    3. Remove tuna from the marinade and shake off the excess. Place tuna onto preheated barbecue and cook to desired doneness, about 5 minutes per 2.5cm for medium-rare or 10 minutes per 2.5cm for medium-well.

    It had a great flavor and complimented the tuna very nicely. We only wished it had a slightly stronger citrus taste. A solution might be to add some orange rind and maybe not use as much basil and oregano- maybe 3/4 t instead of 1 t each. Overall, it had a wonderful flavor!  -  09 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe is easy, quick, and tastes great! I wanted a new way to grill tuna, and Man this is now going to be the recipe I go to first. I served it with rice and fresh green beans, delicious.  -  24 May 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Called for a little too much oil. It's also very tasty if you slice fresh mango and heat it lightly in the same pan. Oh lala!!  -  02 Jun 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
