Directions

  1. Preheat grill for medium heat.
  2. Place tuna in a glass dish. Prepare the vinaigrette by whisking together the wine, olive oil, red wine vinegar, rosemary, pepper, salt and garlic. Pour 2 tablespoons over fish and turn to coat. Marinate 15 to 30 minutes, turning once. Reserve remaining vinaigrette for salad dressing.
  3. Coat grill rack with cooking spray and place on grill to heat 1 minute. Place tuna on grill 4 to 6 inches over hot coals. Cover with lid or tent with foil. Cook, turning once, just until tuna begins to flake easily when tested with a fork, about 7 minutes. Discard marinade.
  4. Arrange salad greens on 4 plates. Place hot tuna on greens and add cherry tomatoes. Stir remaining vinaigrette and drizzle over salads.

Thanks Hank! This was a great! The prep time was so quick. The marinade/dressing has a really great flavor. My husband had gotten out a store-bought bottle of dressing just in case he didn't like this one....he didn't need it! Very, very, very good!

This recipe just seemed too bland for our taste.

Delicious! Full of flvor, yet light and healthy, and very easy to make. I'd recommend following the grilling instructions to a T - grill for 3.5 minutes each side, no more - the tuna just turns out perfectly, nice and pink and moist on the inside. I did double the vinaigrette and also added a bunch of veggies and such to the salad, which sounded a little plain.

I used this recipe some time ago when I was trying to figure out what to do with some fresh tuna and some arugula I'd gotten in an organic vegetable box. I'm a little leery about cooking with fish, because it can so easily go wrong, but I really like this recipe for a simple and light-but-satisfying option. So much so that I've actually come back looking for it now, since I lost my print out in an international move!

I used the following salad dressing which turned out great: 2 parts sesame oil 1 part soy sauce 1 part ginger syrup sesame seeds and pepper (optional)

This recipe was just okay for us. I followed the directions and made only one subsitution, dried rosemary instead of fresh. Maybe we cooked it a little too long b/c it was sort of dry too. But overall, it was just sort of flat tasting. Nothing special. I wouldn't even try this one again.

Not one of my favourite ways to have salmon...

The photo is of my plate just before I sat down to eat. I followed the entire recipe except for the dressing. I used Guy Small's recommendation for dressing. The entire family and I loved this meal!!
