Prepare your COBB Grill and light a CobbleStone and wait a few minutes until it has turned grey. Or, if you don’t have a CobbleStone on hand, ready your briquettes. Place Griddle and Dome Lid on COBB Grill and let heat up for at least 5 minutes. If you do not have a Roasting Stand and Dome Extension, use Roast Rack.


  • Toss all marinade ingredients in a pestle and mortar and gently bash together to release the flavors.
  • Slice the tuna into thick steaks, place them into a shallow dish and pour over the marinade.
  • Toss salad ingredients together. Whisk dressing ingredients together and drizzle half of it over the salad and season to taste.
  • Place tuna on the Griddle and sear all sides. This will take approximately 2 minutes a side for rare, varying on thickness and size. Allow to rest for a minute or two and serve with the fresh citrus salad and the extra dressing.
