Directions

To make marinade: In a nonreactive shallow bowl, combine the oil, juice, garlic, jalapeno pepper and oregano or cilantro. Add the tuna and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate, turning once, 2 hours. To make rub and fish: In a small bowl combine the chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, pepper and salt; set aside. Preheat the grill on high. Transfer the tuna to a platter, discarding the marinade. Sprinkle both sides of each tuna steak with the spice rub. Lightly brush the grill rack and both sides of the fish with oil. Grill the fish over high heat 5 to 6 minutes.
