Grilled Yellowfin Tuna
2 pounds Florida yellowfin tuna steaks
1/4 cup Florida orange juice
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons catsup
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons chopped fresh Florida parsley
1 tablespoon Florida lime juice
1 clove Florida garlic, finely, chopped
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Cut tuna into serving-size pieces. Place in a shallow baking dish in a single layer. Combine remaining ingredients and pour over steaks; refrigerate steaks for 30 minutes, turning once. Remove fish from marinade and place on a lightly-oiled grill. Cook fish 4 inches from moderately hot coals for 5-6 minutes. Heat marinade to a boil and remove from heat. Turn fish over and baste with marinade. Cook 4-5 minutes longer or until steak flakes easily with a fork. Discard marinade. Tuna should have a pink center.
