Ninja Foodi Grill Tuna Steak Recipe

With an Asian ginger soy marinade that enhances the sweet and creamy flavor of this yellowfin favorite, these delicious air fryer tuna steaks.

You have plenty of seafood recipes to choose from, including air fryer salmon, frozen shrimp, and these ahi tuna steaks. An air fryer is known for cooking just about everything in it, and fish is no exception.

I’ll describe ahi tuna in detail, including what it is, how to prepare it, and how often you should consume it. I’ll also demonstrate how to prepare frozen tuna steaks in your air fryer.

For this recipe, I used the Cosori 5.8QT Air Fryer, whose square basket has more than enough space for me to double it for a family of 4.

How do you grill tuna on a ninja grill?

Use the Grill mode on the Ninja Foodi, set the timer for 10 minutes (without preheating), season a piece of about 300g of tuna with pink salt, Italian seasoning premix, and white sesame seeds, and grill the piece for the remaining time.

How long does it take to cook tuna steaks in the air fryer?

Pat the tuna dry, season with salt and pepper, and grill for 30 to 60 seconds per side, or until cooked on the outside but still raw inside, at the highest heat possible (500 to 700 degrees Fahrenheit, depending on how hot your grill gets).

How long should tuna steaks be cooked?

Cooking time may vary depending on the wattages of your air fryer and the thickness of the tuna steaks. Air fry at 380 degrees F for 8 to 10 minutes, turning halfway through cooking time. Remove from basket, season with salt to taste, and sprinkle steaks with sesame seeds before plating.
