Grilled tuna with vegetables.

Share this recipe

Are you ready to try grilled seafood? Today we present you with an option for adding fish to your barbecues. Tuna is one of the best fish to grill because of its firm texture.

To get the tuna just right, it is important to cook it until it is done on the outside, while retaining its characteristic reddish colour and juicy, tender texture on the inside. Therefore, we recommend cooking each piece for 40-45 seconds on each side.

When you have your tuna ready, you can accompany it with your favourite garden vegetables by simply blanching them for a minute and then taking them straight to the grill.

Defrost a couple of Koldfin Frozen Yellowfin Tuna Slices and get ready to grill to perfection.

Ingredients ( 4 pax)

  • 2 pack of Koldfin Frozen Marinated Yellowfin Tuna Slices.
  • 1 cauliflower
  • 1 spring onion
  • 1 broccoli
  • 2 carrots
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Dificultad Low

Step by step 1/5

Prepare your coal fires. While you wait for the flames to die down, bring a pot of water to the boil.

Paso a paso 2/5

Add a generous amount of salt and cover to bring to the boil more quickly. While waiting, chop the cauliflower, broccoli, onion and carrots.

Paso a paso 3/5

While the water is boiling, add the vegetables in a specific order by colour, to avoid staining: first the cauliflower, and after two minutes add the onion. Leave to cook for 4 and 2 minutes respectively (although this may vary slightly depending on size).

Paso a paso 4/5

Remove the cauliflower and onion onto a tray and set aside. Then add the remaining vegetables, starting with the broccoli and after a minute the carrots. Leave to cook for 3 and 2 minutes, respectively (although this may vary slightly depending on size).

Paso a paso 5/5

When the coals are ready, we can grill our Koldfin Yellowfin Tuna slices. Add the vegetables to the grill along with some chicory. Serve, add a drizzle of oil and salt and pepper to taste.

Add tuna to your barbecues

If you love tuna, you’ll love it grilled. Grilling offers smoky nuances that are not normally achieved using other cooking methods, such as pan-frying or baking.

When preparing your barbecue, it is important to keep in mind that the coals must be very hot, as our aim is only to sear it for a few seconds per side (about 45 seconds, although this may vary according to personal taste).

If the coals are too low, it is likely that by the time the outside is cooked, the inside will be too cooke and the tuna will lose some flavour and become dry.
