Yellowfin Tuna Kabobs

Photo by: Joseph De Leo

Ahi, bluefin, and all fresh varieties of tuna work well here. Great for a summer party by the pool.

Yield: 6 servings

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 Tbl sesame seed oil
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 2 Tbl orange juice
  • 1 Tbl honey
  • 1 Tbl dry ginger
  • 1 Tbl minced garlic
  • 2 lbs fresh yellowfin tuna, cut into 3–4 thick steaks
  • 1 cup wood chips, soaked in water for 1 hour
  • 12 medium button mushrooms, cut in half
  • 1 red onion, peeled and cut into 1½-inch squares
  • 12 pineapple chunks
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into twelve 1-inch squares
  • 2 Tbl olive oil
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Mix together the sesame oil, vegetable oil, soy sauce, orange juice, honey, ginger, and garlic, and blend well. Place the tuna and marinade into a large baggie. Seal the baggie and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Prepare the smoker for indirect VERY LOW heat. Place the marinated tuna as far from the heat as possible and place a small handful of chips on the coals. Smoke the tuna 30–40 minutes, making sure that the tuna does not cook. Remove the tuna from the smoker and refrigerate 1 hour.

Once the tuna has chilled completely, cut the steaks into 1½–2-inch cubes.

Using 12 skewers, alternately skewer the tuna with the vegetables. Each skewer should have 2 pieces of mushrooms, 2 pieces of onion, 1 pineapple chunk, and 1 bell pepper piece, along with the tuna.

Prepare the grill. Brush the skewers with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Grill over direct high heat for 5–7 minutes, turning once. Use the remaining marinade to brush the skewers while cooking.
