Nothing incites a craving for fresh fish like a day at the beach…so get yours in while it lasts. Rather than reel in your own, pretend you know how to gut and fillet it and cook it over the sand-and-rocks fire you Googled how to construct, why not defer to tuna? It’s sturdy like a steak (with way less fat and more healthy omega-3s) and won’t burn or stick to the grill as easily as other lighter fish might, so it’s the perfect catch for the impromptu beach or post-beach grill session. Our recommendation: don’t cook it all the way. Just don’t.
