Best Way to Make Some Freshly Caught Tuna?

My boyfriend's buddy is quite the deep sea fisherman and he just gifted us with a giant slab of freshly caught tuna (caught yesterday!). I've never cooked tuna at home before and was looking for suggestions or recipe links for something simple and summery that will do this fresh fish justice.

When recipes say "sushi grade tuna" do they just mean that it should be wicked fresh? Or would it be unsafe for me to try my hand at making some tuna tartare or a spicy tuna salad with this catch?
