Whisk first eight ingredients in medium bowl; season with pepper. Transfer 3 tbsp. marinade to a small bowl; reserve. Add tuna to remaining marinade in medium bowl; toss to coat. Refrigerate at least 30 min. Alternate tuna, peppers and onions on skewers. Spray skewers lightly with vegetable oil spray. Grill directly over a grill preheated to medium-high, turning frequently (about 4 min. for medium-rare). Transfer skewers to a serving platter; drizzle with reserved marinade and sprinkle with cilantro. Serve immediately.
