Sprinkle tuna steaks with salt and pepper. Grill on greased grill racks 2 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness.

Recommended wine: Merlot, Pinot Noir, Rose Wine
Tuna works really well with Merlot, Pinot Noir, and rosé Wine. Though fish is often paired with white wine, 'meatier' fish like tuna can absolutely go with red wine. A Rosé will also pair nicely, particularly if your tunan is prepared with ingredients better suited to a white wine. The Beringer Howell Mountain Bancroft Ranch Merlot with a 4.2 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 35 dollars per bottle.
