Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds sushi-grade yellowfin tuna. cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice (from 2 limes)
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

Cook's Note

If you're using wooden or bamboo skewers, soak them in cold water for at least 30 minutes before using.

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Heat a grill pan over medium heat or preheat a charcoal or gas grill to medium. (If you're using a charcoal grill, coals are ready when you can hold your hand 5 inches above grill for just 5 to 6 seconds.) Toss tuna with 1 tablespoon oil. Thread tuna onto 4 skewers.

  2. Step 2

    Combine cilantro, lime juice, and 1/4 cup oil. Season with salt and pepper. Reserve 3 tablespoons.

  3. Step 3

    Brush pan or grill grate with remaining tablespoon oil. Grill tuna, turning skewers and brushing tuna occasionally with lime sauce, to desired doneness, about 2 minutes per side for rare. Transfer skewers to a serving plate, and brush with reserved lime sauce. Serve immediately.
