Dear Striper Mike
In your last edition tuna seemed to be a hot picture item. I figured a tuna recipe was in order since my husband brought one home recently. Although the summer has ended we haven't lost our inkling for grilling. Hope you like this quick and tasty grilled tuna.
4, 6oz tuna steaks...5 Tbls olive oil...1 large fennel bulb, trimmed and cut into 1/4inch pieces...1 red pepper, and 1/2 of a sweet onion both cut like the fennel...2 garlic cloves, minced...1/2cup orange juice.
Heat 4Tbls oil in heavy skillet, add fennel, red pepper, onion, and garlic, sauté until tender, 6 minutes or so. Add orange juice, cook another minute. Brush tuna steaks with remaining Tbls of oil, season with salt and pepper. Grill, watching closely (tuna cooks quickly) about 2 minutes per side for medium. Plate each of the tuna steaks individually, spoon 1/4 of the sauce over each, serve immediately.
