OMG, it’s freakin hot in Toronto.  I love it.  But it’s making me sluggish so my cooking efforts have been very minimal… Salads and grilled meat are my bread and butter.  Even if you don’t normally like Tuna unless it’s rolled up in rice and seaweed, you will like this.  I promise.  Especially because you can use guacamole to dip it in…..guac makes everything better.  The gauc is highly recommended in this recipe because the tuna is spicy and the cool guac evens out the taste.  This recipe takes 5 minutes to prep and then goes on the grill for just a few minutes.  I served it with a side of grilled brocolini.

Ingredients (serves 2)
– 2 wild tuna steaks (6-8oz each or go bigger if you can handle it!!)
– 1 Tbsp paprika
– 1 tsp of each: ground mustard, garlic powder, ground nutmeg, allspice, ginger, cayenne pepper, tumeric, red pepper flakes, coriander 
– salt and pepper to taste
– 1 tbsp olive oil


  1. Mix spices together in a small bowl.
  2. Evenly distribute olive oil onto tuna steaks
  3. Rub the spice mix all over the steaks.
  4. Throw on the grill (med-high heat) for about 3 min / side.  If you prefer it more rare in the middle (which is how it’s supposed to be served), don’t leave it any longer.  Depending on how thick your steaks are, you may not need 3 min/side.
  5. Serve with a generous dollop of guacamole.
  6. Enjoy!
