Get dinner on the table in just 10 minutes with this unbelievably easy grilled tuna dish. The mayonnaise mixture which consists of mayonnaise combined with yogurt, lemon zest and several herbs can be made in advanced and stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Be creative in the kitchen—experiment with a variety of fresh herbs to make up your own herbed mayonnaise recipe. For optimal freshness, grill tuna on the same day that you purchase it. If your cooking with frozen tuna, thaw in the refrigerator, which should take about one to two days. Serve alongside herbed rice sprinkled with feta cheese and a Mediterranean salad.
