You've adjusted the recipe from 4 (as originally posted) to 4 Servings. The ingredients above reflect 4 Servings, but the instructions reflect the as-posted 4. You may need to adjust the times, temperatures or quantities mentioned in the recipe below as needed.

Place the basil leaves, olive oil, vinegar, soy sauce, pepper, sugar, salt and 2 tablespoons hot water in a blender and puree. Arrange the tuna steaks in a baking dish large enough to hold them in a single layer. Pour the marinade over the fish. Cover and marinate for 3-4 hours in the refrigerator - turning the steaks occasionally. Prepare coals for grilling for preheat the broiler. Drain the tuna steaks and grill them over medium-hot coals or broil 4-5 inches from he heat until charred on the outside but still pink in the center ~ about 3 minutes - turning the steaks once. Do not overcook. Remove from the heat and place the steaks on warmed dinner plates. Spoon the strawberry salsa over the tuna, garnish each with a sprig of basil and serve immediately. VARIATION: GRILLED TUNA WITH SAUTEED TROPICAL FRUITS: Marinate and grill the tuna steaks as directed above. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add to the skillet 1/2 cup each: Diced fresh banana, pineapple, mango and papaya with 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves, 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice and 1 tablespoon sugar. Saute just until the mixture is heated through - about 30 seconds. Do not overcook. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Spoon the sauteed fruit mixture over the tuna and serve immediately.
