BBQ Tuna with Cracked Black Pepper Dressing

BBQ Tuna with Cracked Black Pepper Dressing ~ Simple Food


This is a nice alternative to burgers for your barbeque.

I’ve cooked the tuna indoors but if you are eating outside it cooks great on the BBQ, but don’t overcook it.
You can make the dressing well in advance.

Put a little olive oil on a griddle and heat it up on a medium to high heat and cook the tuna steak both sides but leave it fairly pink in the middle.
Don’t overcook the tuna or it will become dry and flaky.
