Give-away - Today's recipe.
Hello and welcome to today's recipe. This is a dish that Cal made for Ade. It's a great summer main course, although I've been known to make it as an alternative Christmas Dinner when the prospect of wrestling a turkey into an oven was just too much.
Tuna steaks - Cal style. (serves 2)
2 tuna steaks
Juice from one lime
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
1 red bell pepper, finely chopped
Marinate the tuna in a mixture of the lime juice, olive oil and garlic. The longer the better.
Saute the pepper until at the desired consistency. I like a bit of crunch to mine because overcooked bell pepper squicks me out. Pour in the tomatoes, add about a teaspoon of the oregano and basil and salt to taste. Simmer.
While the sauce is simmering, grill the tuna steaks.
Serve the steaks with a bit of the sauce on top. As much or as little as you like. Nice with a green salad and baked potato.
