Keep dinner simple and quick with grilled tuna topped with a zesty lime butter. Tuna is a high-quality protein and a good source for omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids serve as a heart guard and studies have confirmed the benefits of eating fish to cardiovascular health. The adult daily requirement for omega-3 fatty acid is estimated to be 300 to 400 milligrams a day.

Prepare Lime Butter and set aside.

Brush steaks with oil on both sides. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill about 4 inches from coals until done on one side, about 6 to 7 minutes. Turn and repeat on other side. Spread with Lime Butter. Serves 4.

In small bowl, combine margarine, juice and lime zest. Set aside for flavors to blend. Serve over cooked steaks.
