Tempting Tuna Steaks

Good evening bloggers! Welcome to a nightly edition of Everyday Meals. Tonight, we are continuing on with the trend of fish. With that trend, we will be making a delicious dish with tuna steaks. It's a very simple meal that feeds up to 4 people. If you feel necessary, you can double the recipe for larger families. Let's grab that apron and get cooking!

Marinated Tuna Steaks with Cucumber Sauce

You will need:

For the Tuna
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

  2. Add the fish to the lime mixture, turning several times to coat.
