Yield
4 servings (serving size: 1 steak and 1 1/2 tablespoons orange mayonnaise)

Press on a flavorful crust of cracked peppercorns before placing the tuna steak on an oak plank. Char one side of plank, then flip and place the fish on the darkened, smoke-infused wood for an extra boost of flavor.

How to Make It

Step 1

Immerse and soak plank in water for 1 hour; drain.

Step 2

Prepare grill, heating one side to medium and one side to high heat.

Step 3

Combine mayonnaise, rind, juice, and chives; stir well with a whisk. Chill.

Step 4

Lightly coat top of tuna with cooking spray. Sprinkle the tuna with salt; firmly press peppercorns into tuna.

Step 5

Place plank on grill rack over high heat; grill 5 minutes or until lightly charred. Carefully turn plank over; move to medium heat. Place tuna on charred side of plank. Cover and grill 10 minutes or until desired degree of doneness. Serve tuna with orange mayonnaise.

Wonderful flavor! I used cedar instead of oak, and it was delicious. Very light and healthy - and so quick to prepare! You don't turn the fish. Just leave it on the plank and cook for about 10 minutes. We talked about how good this was until bedtime. Definately a keeper!

Don't even need the sauce. Put the tuna on a Greek Salad and it was delicious.
