A simple relish of parsley and olives jazzes up grilled tuna. Make it a meal: Serve with grilled vegetables and steamed new potatoes.



READER'S COMMENT:
"Fresh grilled tuna is . . . awesome. When done right you don't need anything. Just be aware to not overcook otherwise it may as well be a piece of wood (hard and DRY). The relish is somewhat questionable. Some of us DON'T LIKE garlic....
