Keep tuna steaks at room temperature, until they worms up to room temperature. Brush each side of tuna steak with garlic-soy sauce marinade and leave for 8-10 minutes before cooking.
Charcoals should be very hot, and cooking grate should be very close to them, about 10-12 cm away. Brush cooking grate with oil. Place tuna steak, on the grate, and cook on each side for not longer than 1 minute.
Turn steak and brush with garlic-say sauce fro more flavours. Cook for one minute and turn again, brush and turn again. The idea is to make nice looking grate trace on the surface of the fish, caramelize the surface of the marinated fish and keep inside part rare. This is much easier with thick steaks. Serve and enjoy.
