Happy 3 Years!

Since Mr. Lawyer is taking me out to a fancy dinner Friday night I decided to make him a special dinner Thursday night. It was pretty decent although a little crispy around the edges. I made marinated tuna steak and served it with my standard yummy baked salt/pepper/garlic asparagus and some rice pilaf. We finished it off with some cappuccino ice cream. I had never had tuna steak before and therefore had never cooked it. I thought the marinade was a bit light, I would have like a more soy or citrusy flavor. However the lightness of the marinade did showcase the fish which was delicious. Best compliment ever: "God you can really do asparagus."
Marinated Tuna Steak
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 (4 ounce) tuna steaks
1. In a large non-reactive dish, mix together the orange juice, soy sauce, olive oil, lemon juice, parsley, garlic, oregano, and pepper. Place the tuna steaks in the marinade and turn to coat. Cover, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
2. Preheat grill for high heat.
3. Lightly oil grill grate. Cook the tuna steaks for 5 to 6 minutes, then turn and baste with the marinade. Cook for an additional 5 minutes, or to desired doneness. 
Happy Dinner!
