Perfect for a barbecue, this is also a terrific dish to prepare on a stove-top grill when rushed after a busy day.
Serves: 2
Prep.Time: 15 minutes
2 fresh tuna steaks (about 3/4 pounds)
Juice of 1 lime
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper -- to taste
1/2 cup chunk salsa or picante sauce
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
Place tuna in a pie plate; coat with lime juice and allow to sit about 10 minutes. Make sure grill or coals are hot; or else heat a stovetop grill pan until very hot. Brush tuna on both sides with oil; sprinkle both sides of tuna with salt and pepper. Cook 4-5 minutes per side, but do not overcook. Serve hot, topped with some salsa and garnished with cilantro.
