Flippen Fabulous Father's day fest idea with Greenfish.

Updated: Jun 15, 2020

Father's day is around the corner. I have started to look at different ideas of how to celebrate. This year our annual Father's day braai wont happen (social distancing and all ...)

Im looking at different way s of still making the day special for Chris. My husband is a typical man and the saying goes "the way to his heart is through his stomach". Chris' Afrikaans genes are very evident in his love for "vleis"and a fire.

Tuna Steaks are absolutely delicious done on the braai! Fish is a great middle ground for those who enjoy meat and those who prefer something a bit lighter. Tuna seems to fit the bill nicely for a manly meal.

Price: R 299.00 2x Yellowfin Tuna Steaks (+-800g-950g per box) (enough to serve 4)

Order fresh fish to be delivered to your door from their online shop

The tuna has been locally and sustainably caught by Greenfish Pole fisherman, one hook, one line, one fish at a time. We have carefully selected for you to enjoy with your family or friends. You can also use this to cut sashimi or marinade for the braai.

This box is ideal for any fish lover to add some variety into their weekday cooking or on the braai. We have taken care of the mess; you look after the rest. Your fish will arrive in individual vacuum packs, to make it easy to use at home.

Recipe below from for a delicious marinade and braai instructions.

Recipe :

Yellowfin Tuna Steaks on the Braai By TheFishWife

Cook Time -10 min

This recipe is so simple. All you need to do is whip up a quick marinade, throw in your Greenfish yellowfin tuna steaks (which are already perfectly prepped and ready to go), marinade for an hour or two and, with a quick toss on the braai, dinner is served!


  • 1 pack of Greenfish Yellowfin Tuna Steaks (2 steaks)

  • Salt & Pepper

  • Japanese 7 spice (or 5 spice)

  • 1/3 Cup Teriyaki Sauce

  • 1/3 Cup Soy Sauce

  • 3 Tbsp Olive Oil (or sesame oil)

  • 2 Tbsp Lemon Juice (or half a squeezed lemon)


1. Sprinkle the tuna steaks with a small dash of the seven spice and a pinch of salt and pepper. (Do not use too much of the seven spice as it has some heat to it!)

2. In a glass dish create the marinade by combining the teriyaki, soy sauce, olive oil and lemon juice.

3. Place the seasoned tuna steaks into the marinade, cover the bowl with cling film and pop into the fridge. Marinade for at least half an hour before turning

the steaks over and marinating the other side. Leave the steaks to marinade for an hour or two.

4. Remove the steaks from the marinade and braai over medium hot coals with the grid on the middle setting for about 1-2 minutes a side. Make sure you discard the marinade and do not pour over the steaks. Excess marinade will burn and become bitter.

5. Serve immediately.

I have known Ryan and the Greenfish team for a number of years now. You will be hard pressed to find someone that is more passionate about the ocean and sustainable fishing than Ryan Nienaber.

Now I need to think of some wonderful side dishes to pair with the Tuna Steaks.

usually I would do a wine pairing but because it is Father's day , i'm thinking of doing a beer pairing with the tuna. What do you think?
