Ingredients

  • 4 tuna steaks
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • Sliced pineapple, for serving

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together pineapple juice, soy sauce, lime juice, brown sugar, ginger, garlic, chili powder, salt, black pepper, and cilantro to make the marinade.

  3. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
