Wife got it from someone at her work. Itís about a foot square and 4Ē thick. Frozen rock hard and vaccumm packed. Itís almost beef red.

My first thought is slice some as sashimi to snack on and grill the rest over lump charcoal with lime and olive oil.

Yes.

Dip the raw bits in some soy.

Caramelize some minced onion and fresh pressed garlic with a pinch of sea salt and lemon juice, add olive oil on low heat and let simmer while stirring so you don't burn it. A little cracked pepper, a dash of basil then let it cook down a bit. Cool to room temperature and rub it into the tuna steak, let sit in the fridge over night and grill it for dinner the next day.

I'm partial to fresh fruit salsas or chutneys with grilled tuna.

Tried this one?

Chop up finely a good handful of Cilantro
Dice
1-2 Ripe Mango's
1 Small Red Onion
1-5 Haberneros or Jalopeno depending on your taste and heat tolerance
Juice from 4-5 limes

Salt/Pepper/Cumin to taste...let it sit for an hour or two to marry the flavor...

I've made similar, yes. Sun dried cherry salsa is a favorite too. Sweet peppers plus some hot ones, but same gist

Acouple times a year the "tuna boat" comes into the harbor and brings fresh tuna. I just sear it, probably eaten over 100#s.
