Recipe for :

Grilled Tuna
This recipe comes from Alfredo, who has his own website which features some really wonderful Italian recipes. A visit to his website is well worth it if Italian recipes are what you are after. All well laid out and easy to read.


Large handful of fresh herbs (eg chervil, chives, tarragon and parsley)
3 tomatoes, peeled, cored, seeded, chopped
1/2 C extra virgin olive oil
1 lb. fresh tuna steak, 3" thick
3 Tblsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 Tblsp extra virgin olive oil


Prepare the sauce: Combine tomatoes, oil, lemon juice and garlic in a bowl. Stir to blend. Season with salt to taste. Set aside for 1 to 2 hours to allow the flavors to blend. Just before cooking the tuna, add the herbs and stir to blend. Preheat an outdoor grill or a broiler (in which case, heat a dry cast iron skillet over high heat). Brush the tuna with the oil and cook for just 1 minute on each side. The tuna will be very rosy and rare on the inside and charred on the outside. Remove the tuna to a large preheated platter and top with half of the sauce. Cut tuna into thick strips and serve with additional sauce
