Seared BBQ Tuna
by Lee Kum Kee

Tuna is a very lean fish and tends to dry out quickly on the grill. While marinating and applying oil to the fish will help reduce this, if you cook tuna beyond medium rare it will be dry. Tuna is a great fish for grilling and is very unlike most any fish you have ever cooked. It is truly unique and well worth the effort, especially considering how easy it is.
