  • In a small bowl whisk the vinaigrette ingredients until well blended. Coat the tuna steaks on both sides with the vinaigrette and season evenly with the salt and pepper.

  • Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the tuna over direct high heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until just turning opaque throughout, about 8 minutes, turning once. Remove from the grill.

  • Serve warm with lemon wedges and fresh basil sprinkled on top.
