Adobo Tuna

This was really good. D prepped it while I was at work. He is not a big fish fan, but ate it and said it was good too. Not spicy at all. We had it with yellow rice/black beans.

Adobo Tuna

Adobo is a garlic, cumin, and sour-citrus marinade.

1/3 cup fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 garlic cloves, minced
4 (6-ounce) tuna steaks (about 1/2 inch thick)
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon cracked pepper
Cooking spray
Lime slices (optional)

Combine first 5 ingredients in a large shallow dish; add fish, turning to coat. Cover and marinate in refrigerator 1 hour, turning fish occasionally.

Preheat broiler. Remove fish from dish, discarding marinade. Brush oil over fish; sprinkle with pepper. Place fish on broiler pan coated with cooking spray; broil 4 minutes or until medium-rare (do not turn). Garnish with lime slices, if desired.
