  3. Add the fish and turn to coat on all sides then grill for 3-5 minutes on each side.

Eat sustainably with Skipjack tuna. Making up more than 70 percent of the American canned tuna market, Skipjack tuna is an abundant and widely-fished tuna species. Unlike its overfished cousins the Bluefin and Albacore, the Skipjack is a relatively small tuna that is known as one of the more ecologically sustainable tuna species. Skipjack tuna has a bold flavor, so its steak suits robust sauces and garnishes.
