Last night we decided to grill up some Tuna steaks.. which I have never done before!  So, I did a little bit of googling, and ended up just concocting my own marinade recipe!

Soy-Lime Marinade:

1/2 c. Low Sodium Soy Sauce

1/3 c. Lime Juice, or about 2 limes worth

3 tbs. olive oil

2 tbs. brown sugar

1 tbs. garlic powder, or minced garlic

My steaks were about an inch and a half thick.  So, I let them marinade in a pan as long as I could.  However, I was making them for dinner that evening, so I really only let them sit for about a half hour.  it could have gone longer.  Chase fired up the grill and we gave each side about 3 minutes each.  

If I had more time, I would have let them marinade a little longer.  

We paired it with a spinach and spring green salad, with tomatoes and avocado, topped with crushed walnuts and a raspberry vinaigrette!  Needless to say, our dinner last night was DELICIOUS!   

                Tuna is a great source of lean protein, as well Omega 3 fatty acids, calcium, vitamin B 12 and vitamin D.  It's beneficial to eat fish twice a week to help heart health, control weight, can help lower blood pressure, and is great for hair, skin and nails!
