Step 1

Wrap each tuna steak with a strip of bacon and secure with wooden skewers or toothpicks.

Make the marinade: Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Set aside 2 tablespoons of the marinade.

Marinate tuna steaks for about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400°F.

Arrange tuna steaks on a baking pan and bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes or until completely cooked.
