Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Marinating Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
Servings: 2


  • 1 Tablespoon Pimenton spice blend
  • 1 lemon
  • 3 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 pound tuna steaks


  • In a medium bowl, combine Pimenton spice blend with the zest of the lemon, olive oil, and salt.
  • Cut the tuna steaks into 1-inch cubes and add to the bowl. Toss and refrigerate to marinate anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours.
  • Thirty minutes before cooking, remove marinated tuna from the fridge so it comes to room temperature. Thread the tuna cubes onto skewers. Cook over medium-high heat on a preheated well-oiled grill or in a frying pan. Cook the tuna skewers for about 2 minutes, rotating every 30 seconds or so. Remove from pan and serve alongside cut lemon wedges.
