2
(4-oz.) tuna steaks

Sauce

1/3
cup sliced ripe olives
1

Directions

  • 1 Heat grill. In small bowl, combine basil, 2 teaspoons oil and 1 garlic clove; mix well. Rub on both sides of tuna steaks. Set aside.
  • 2 In food processor bowl with metal blade, combine all sauce ingredients except parsley. Process with on/off pulses until finely chopped, scraping down sides of bowl if necessary. Set aside.

Tips  

To broil tuna, place on broiler pan; broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using times above as a guide, turning once.

The olive and caper sauce for this grilled tuna features the flavors of tapenade, a classic French Provencal recipe. Used as a condiment, tapenade is a thick paste of olives, capers, anchovies, lemon juice olive oil and sometimes bits of tuna.

The olive and caper sauce can also be used for crostini, or as a condiment for meats, poultry or fish. Refrigerate the sauce for up to three days.

Fresh or frozen tuna steaks have light- to dark-pink flesh. As the tuna cooks the flesh lightens to a pale cream color. Albacore tuna, primarily used for canned tuna, is the only tuna that can be called white.

Prepare the sauce up to three days ahead; cover and refrigerate it.

Enjoy this entire with deli coleslaw and corn on the cob.
