Mango-Lime Tuna

Mango Lime Tuna

Grilled tuna is incredible. It has a meaty quality, yet is light and full of protein and omega-3. The marinade provides a tropical feel and brightens up the tuna. Tuna tastes best when prepared to a medium-rare doneness, but if you like your tuna more well-done, cook it for 2-3 minutes longer.
