These kebabs use a low fat Caesar salad dressing as a marinade, with an added flavor kick from freshly ground black pepper, basil, and a pinch of cayenne.
As with any tuna dish, keep a close watch while they're cooking. Just a couple of minutes on each side is all that's needed to produce rich and juicy results.
