Grilled Hawaiian Tuna Steaks

Prep: 25 minutes plus standing
Grill: 6 minutes • Serves: 4

1/2 cup pineapple juice
1/3 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
2 tablespoons less-sodium soy sauce
4 tuna steaks (about 1-1/2 pounds)
Nonstick cooking spray
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 green onions, thinly sliced

1.Prepare outdoor grill for direct grilling over medium-high heat. In small saucepan, heat pineapple juice, lime juice, orange juice and soy sauce to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook 10 minutes or until reduced by half. Makes about 1/2 cup.

2. Reserve 1/2 the pineapple juice mixture; pat tuna dry with paper towel. Spray both sides of tuna with cooking spray; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place tuna on hot grill rack; cover and cook 6 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 135° for medium-rare, turning once and brushing with remaining 1/2 of pineapple juice mixture every 2 minutes. Transfer tuna to cutting board; tent with aluminum foil and let stand 10 minutes. (Internal temperature will rise to 145° upon standing.)

3. Slice tuna against the grain; serve sprinkled with onions along with reserved pineapple juice mixture.
