Serves: 4 

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger root

Prep:20min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. In a medium bowl, mix together olive oil, lime juice, balsamic vinegar, garlic, ginger and coriander. Add tuna fillets, and turn to coat evenly. Let marinate for several hours in the refrigerator.
  2. Preheat barbecue for high heat. In a small bowl, mix together honey, 2 tablespoons olive oil, and 2 tablespoons coriander; set aside.
  3. When charcoals are at a lower heat, place tuna fillets on the lightly oiled cooking grate. Close lid, and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Flip fillets over carefully, and close lid again for another minute to sear fish. Open lid, and continue cooking until barely done, basting frequently with marinade. When fish is almost cooked through, brush the honey glaze over both sides of fish, and remove from heat.

Yum. Cooked ours in a frying pan but was still fab. Only used half the marinade so will try and freeze rest. - 15 Sep 2015


This is a great meal. It didn't take long at all to prep, an was totally packed with flavour. I would recommend serving it with seared beans and asparagus. The honey glaze is sufficient for 4 , as you don't want to drown out the flavour of the marinade. I will cook this again an again. Totally delicious!!! - 03 Jun 2010
