Mojo Marinated Tuna Steaks over Salad


  • 2 Tuna Steaks
  • 6 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 small white onion, chopped
  • Orange juice, about 1/4 cup
  • Lime juice, from 1 lime squeezed
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Cumin
  • Chopped cilantro
  • Olive oil
  • Salad fixings

This is a mojo-inspired marinade I threw together for tuna steaks. It turned out nicely, and I placed the fish over a fresh salad. A healthy, refreshing, and light dinner.

Place fish steaks in a large ziplock bag. Mince finely or process the onion and garlic. Add to the bag and season with all the other ingredients – use enough to coat the fish on both sides in the bag. You can also marinate in a dish if you prefer. Either way, marinate in fridge for 15 minutes, turn, and marinate for another 15 minutes. Then cook on the grill or sear in a large pan until cooked to your liking. I suggest cooking through for a normal tuna fillet – if you buy sushi-grade cuts, you can sear to a medium rare however.
