  1. Put all of the marinade ingredients in a bowl. Season with sea salt and black pepper, and mix together well. Put the tuna steaks in a plastic freezer bag, pour in the marinade, and seal, making sure that the tuna is well coated. Marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes if time permits.
  2. Heat the barbecue until hot. Grill the tuna steaks over high heat for 2 minutes on each side, turning only once during cooking. Transfer to a plate, and leave to rest in a warm place for 2 minutes.
  3. Serve with a fresh green salad.
