Grilled tuna touches the Mediterranean with tomatoes, olives and basil.

Ingredients

2 1/2
lb fresh asparagus spears, trimmed
2
medium tomatoes, chopped (1 1/2 cups)
1/2
cup crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese (2 oz)
1/4
cup chopped kalamata or ripe olives
1/3
cup chopped fresh basil or oregano leaves
3
tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
1/2
teaspoon garlic salt
1/4
teaspoon pepper
Olive oil
4
tuna steaks, 1 inch thick (about 1 3/4 lb)

Directions

  • 1 Heat gas or charcoal grill. In large skillet, place steamer basket in 1/2 inch water (water should not touch bottom of basket). Place asparagus in steamer basket. Cover tightly and heat to boiling; reduce heat to low. Steam 6 to 8 minutes or until crisp-tender.
  • 2 Meanwhile, in medium bowl, gently toss tomatoes, cheese, olives and 1 tablespoon of the basil. Cover; refrigerate until serving time. In small bowl, mix remaining basil, the oil, garlic salt and pepper. Brush mixture over tuna.
  • 3 Carefully brush oil on grill rack. Place tuna on grill over medium-high heat. Cook uncovered 5 minutes. Turn carefully; brush with any remaining oil mixture. Cook 10 to 15 minutes longer until fish flakes easily with fork and is slightly pink in center.
  • 4 Serve tuna with tomato mixture and asparagus.
Tips  

For a colorful presentation, use a mix of red and yellow tomatoes with the feta and olives.

Kalamata olives are Greek olives with a dark eggplant color and rich fruity flavor. They come packed in olive oil or vinegar.
