    Place tuna on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 8 to 10 minutes, turning once, until tuna flakes easily with fork and is slightly pink in center. Add onions to grill during last 5 minutes of grilling; turn occasionally. Cover tuna and let stand 5 minutes before serving. Serve tuna and onions with dollops of orange butter.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Celery salt adds a nice flavor to the tuna, but plain salt can be substituted.
  • tip 2
    If you have leftover cooked tuna, flake it and use in your favorite tuna salad recipe. Delicious!
