What about grilling your Tuna skewers in a pizza oven oven? I know what you think. Yes, I might be crazy but try it your self… I’m sure you are a bit crazy too.

Wood-Fired Oven Grilled Teriyaki tuna skewers


  • Wood-Fired Oven (I highly recommend The Authentic Pizza Ovens)
  • Cast Iron Grid
  • Aluminum foil


Teriyaki sauce

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup mirin Dry white wine mixed with some sugar makes an easy mirin substitute.
  • 1/2 cup Sake
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp fres ginger minced
  • 2 clove garlic minced
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp honey

Grilled tuna skewers

  • 2 lbs fresh tuna cut into cubes
  • 2 tsp oregano dried
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 lemon


Start your Wood-Fired Oven

  • For this recipe, we will be using our Brazza wood-fired oven from Authentic Pizza ovens. The secret is heating up the oven ahead to sliding in that first skewer. One of the most important things is to heat up the oven to around 700 degrees so the fire bricks are very hot. The whole pre-heating process should take about an hour but it really depends on the wood you'll be using.
  • To start our Brazza (our Authentic Pizz Ovens model), we like to build a very small fire in the middle section of the oven and wait for the small wood to catch. After maybe 15 minutes, we will push the fire logs in the back section, add a couple of maple logs and brush the middle section so it's clean and ready to add our Cast iron grid for our amazing tuna skewers.

Teriyaki sauce

  • Combine all the Teriyaki sauce ingredients in a saucepan, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 4 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool completely.

Grilled tuna skewers

  • Thread each piece of tuna onto a skewer and brush all over generously with your Teriyaki sauce.
  • Place a cast-iron grid in your wood-fired oven, make sure to place an aluminium sheet under to keep your stones clean.
  • When your grid is screaming hot, cook for your skewers for about 2 minutes per side, until charred on the outside but still pink in the center. Grill your Levon on the grid as well.
  • Remove from the grill, drizzle with additional Teriyaki sauce topped with lemon juice and sesame seed. I like to serve the skewers on top of fried rice.
