Try making grilled tuna salad with fresh tuna steaks instead of using canned tuna. It's sandwich-changing.

  • Prep: 30 mins
  • Cook: 30 mins


12 ounces Albacore tuna steaks

2 tablespoons canola oil

1 tablespoon dill pickle juice (from jar)

1/2 tsp. kosher salt

1/2 tsp. course ground black pepper

1/4 tsp. celery salt

3 tablespoons light mayonnaise

1 tsp. Dijon mustard

1 tsp. lemon juice

1 tsp. champagne vinegar

½ tsp. kosher salt

1 hard-boiled egg

1/3 cup celery, diced (1 stalk)

1 dill pickle spear, diced

1 tablespoon onion, minced


1Place the tuna steaks in a zip-top bag. Add 2 tablespoons canola oil, pickle juice, ½ teaspoon salt, pepper and celery salt into the bag. Toss to coat and allow flavors to blend for 20 minutes at room temperature.

2Heat the grill to medium-high heat. Place the steaks on the grill. Grill for 6 minutes. Don’t move the steak while it’s cooking. It will sear and easily flip when ready.

3After about 6 minutes, flip and grill for another 6 minutes. Remove from grill and let cool at room temperature.

4In a bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, mustard, lemon juice, vinegar and ½ teaspoon salt.

5Break the tuna steaks up with your fingers and add to the mayonnaise mixture. Stir to coat.

6Chop the hard-boiled egg and add to the tuna with the celery, pickle and onion.

7Enjoy on a bed of lettuce or as a sandwich.
