RECIPE: How to Make the Best Ever Tuna Steak!

Would you like to have some Insanely delicious tuna? I just did...

Try this Tuna Steak Recipe. It truly is just fantastic! 

This recipe involves marinating the tuna in a mixture of wine, soya sauce and orange juice and herbs which makes this tuna succulent and gives it a wonderful taste.

I've never cooked tuna steak before, but this turned out really great - very juicy and exploding with flavour! 

This recipe has been inspired by, but I have made several modifications to the original based on whatever ingredients I had in stock. You can try out either version or experiment on your own if you are feeling adventurous ;) ... have fun and let me know how it goes.


4 tuna steaks
2 tbsp port wine (red)
2 tbsp Orange juice
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons fresh coriander (finely chopped)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper


  • Add all the ingredients (except tuna steaks) into a stainless-steel bowl and whisk lightly to get a uniform marinade. 
  • Place the tuna steaks in the marinade and turn them over after a couple of minutes, to coat the tuna well. 
  • Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • The next day, let the steaks rest at room temperature for about 10 minutes before cooking. 
  • Pan sear the marinated tuna steaks for about 2 minutes on both sides and place onto a serving dish. 
  • Bring the remainder marinade to a boil and thicken it slightly. Pour this sauce onto the steak for a richer experience. 
  • Garnish with coriander leaves and serve with boiled veggies and fries.
