Directions

1. To grill tuna, put fillets on a barbecue or grill over medium-high heat. Cook for 3 1/2 minutes; then flip and cook for another 3 minutes or until the center is just ready to turn from pink to white.
2. To make mint sauce, combine all ingredients except salt and pepper in a blender until thoroughly combined. Season with salt and pepper. The sauce will keep in the refrigerator for several days. Cover each steak with 2 tablespoons mint sauce and serve immediately.
