Grilled Teriyaki Tuna Packet

Grilling in foil packets allows for all the flavors to meld and clean up is a snap!

Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 20 minutes


  • 1/4 cup lower-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 4 pieces of aluminum foil (12 inches long each)
  • Cooking Spray
  • 12 oz package fresh stir-fry vegetables
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp no-salt seasoning (such as Mrs. Dash or Salt-Free Spike)
  • 4 (4-oz each) yellowfin ahi tuna steak (fresh or frozen; if frozen, thaw before using)


  1. In a small sauce pan, whisk together the soy sauce, water, honey, and garlic. Bring to boiling, then reduce to a simmer. Simmer for 7 to 8 minutes or until the sauce is reduced to 1/4 cup. Set aside to cool.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill to medium heat and spray one side of each sheet of foil with cooking spray.
  3. In a medium bowl, toss together vegetables, garlic and seasoning.
  4. Evenly divide the vegetables among the pieces of foil. Top the vegetables with a piece of tuna steak and drizzle 1 Tbsp of prepared Teriyaki sauce over the tuna.
  5. Bring the ends of the foil together and fold over tightly, three times until sealed to make a packet.
  6. Grill the packets for 20 minutes. Be careful when opening the packets; the steam may be hot.
