Recipe #216 and 217: Grilled Tuna Steaks with Dill Sauce, Grilled Brussels Sprouts

I LOVE that I can grill again!  So satisfying and delicious.  Here are two new recipes in one meal.  The problem is, the pictures don't do either of them justice at ALL.  Actually, the green sauce looks a little weird here but TRUST me, the sauce is amazing, and the sprouts came out perfect.  I even like the blackened leaves.  There was enough sauce to save for something else, too.  The tuna recipe comes from, and the sprouts from, with my changes included.



1/2 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup olive oil
2 1 1/4 inch thick tuna steaks
1/4 cup spicy brown mustard (I used dijon)
1 teaspoon mustard powder
3 tablespoons white sugar (I used 2)
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1/3 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons dried dill (I used 2- 3 is probably major overkill)


Combine the lemon juice with 1/2 cup olive oil in a sealable plastic bag; seal and shake.  Add the tuna steaks and store in refrigerator to marinate while the grill preheats.

Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate.

Whisk the brown mustard, mustard powder, sugar, vinegar and 1/3 cup olive oil together in a bowl; stir in the dill.

Remove the tuna from the marinade and discard the marinade.  Cook the steaks on the preheated grill until the flish flakes easily with a fork, about 6 minutes per side.  Drizzle the steaks with the mustard and dill sauce to serve.



1 lb Brussels sprouts
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic (I used garlic powder so it would stick better)
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Heat a grill to medium.

Cut off the stem end of the Brussels sprouts and remove yellowing outer leaves.  Place into a large, microwave safe mixing bowl and heat in the microwave on high for 3 minutes.  Add the olive oil, garlic, mustard, paprika, and salt and pepper and toss to combine.  Skewer the sprouts onto metal skewers (I used wooden ones sprayed with oil).  Place the skewers onto the grill and cook for 5 minutes (I cooked them for 6, timed with the first side of the tuna steaks).  Turn over and cook for 5 minutes (I cook them for about 4 and then put them on the upper rack while the steaks finished).
