Here's a favorite of mine: two cans low sodium diced tomatoes, two cloves garlic diced, one tbsp diced red onion, one tbsp red wine vinegar, one tbsp capers rinsed, one tbsp extra virgin olive oil. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Add salt & pepper to taste. If you like spice, add a little cayenne pepper or crushed chili flakes. Spoon over the top of the tuna.

I make this when I make my lemon-herb tuna skewers.

4 (4 ounces) portions tuna steak, 1-inch thick

2 tablespoons dry sherry
2 teaspoons sesame oil

In a medium bowl or in a zippered plastic bag, combine all marinade ingredients.

Add the tuna steaks and turn to coat with marinade. Cover and put in the refrigerator. Marinate the tuna for 2 hours.

Remove the tuna from the marinade. Discard marinade. Preheat an oven broiler or grill. Place the tuna steaks on a broiler pan or prepare a grill rack by spraying it with nonstick spray.

Broil or grill the tuna 4-6 inches from the heat source, turning once for a total cooking time of 7-8 minutes. (Cook a bit longer if you want well-done tuna).

I like ginger-soy dressings... I think Kens makes one... depending on how you cook the tuna that would be a nice compliment to it.

This might be a dumb question, but does anyone know of a good sauce to use or recipe, or dressing that would compliment dipping tuna in??? I'm making some tuna steaks tonight and wanted to see if anyone had any suggestions. Thanks ahead of time to anyone's input. I hope everyone has a good day emoticon
