1. Add the lime zest and juice to the steaks and drizzle with the oil. Cover and place the meat in the refrigerator to marinate overnight.

2. Remove the meat from refrigerator 30 minutes before cooking and let the steaks come to room temperature.

3. Preheat barbeque to high heat 475F-500F (246C-260C).

4. Lightly season the steak with salt and pepper and drizzle with oil and take them to the grill. Oil grill to help prevent the meat from sticking to the grill grates.

5. Place steak directly on the grill and cook for 3 minutes or until nice golden char marks are achieved. Give the steak a quarter turn and grill a further 2 minutes. Flip the steak and repeat.

6. Remove from grill cover loosely with foil and let rest 15 minutes.

7. Lower the heat on the barbecue to medium heat (350F) (176C). Right before you are ready to serve, place the tacos in foil and warm on the barbeque for 2 minutes with lid down.

8. Cut the now rested meat against the grain in thin slices. Serve with fresh salsa and warm taco shells.

Summer salsa

1. To make the salsa, combine all of the ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
