Tuna steaks are one of the most popular seafood dishes, and with good reason. They are a healthy, flavorful, and versatile option that can be cooked in a variety of ways. One of our favorite methods is grilling them with a flavorful ginger-soy glaze. The glaze adds a delicious sweetness and a savory umami flavor, and the grilling adds a nice char and smoky flavor. This dish is perfect for a summer cookout or a weeknight dinner.
