Grilled Tuna Steaks with Kimchi

5.0

These marinated and Grilled Tuna Steaks with Kimchi need only one hour in a soy sauce marinade and a quick sear on the grill for a special weeknight dinner or date night. The bold flavor profiles of tuna and kimchi pair really well together and the tuna cooks quickly on your grill. Grill them just like you would rare or medium-rare beef steaks.
