Tuscan Tuna with Tomato Salad
Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels. Set aside. Stir together 1 teaspoon of the vinegar, the olive oil, Italian seasoning, salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl. Brush on both sides of tuna steaks. Set aside.Advertisement
For tomato salad, stir together tomatoes, fennel, basil, shallot, garlic, the remaining 2 teaspoons vinegar and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a medium bowl. Set aside.
For a charcoal grill, place fish on the greased grill rack directly over medium coals. If desired, cover grill grate with foil before placing fish on grill. Grill, uncovered, for 6 to 8 minutes or until fish begins to flake when tested with a fork, turning fish once halfway through grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place fish on a greased grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as directed.)
Serve tuna with reserved tomato salad. Sprinkle with pine nuts and Parmesan.
Tip: Toast pine nuts in a dry skillet over medium heat, shaking the skillet frequently to prevent burning.
