This is a delicious dish! Word to the wise--you cannot divide it! I tried and it was an utter failure. Even if you're making one tuna steak, you must follow the full liquid measurement. The first time I got sweet and sour candied onions and tuna. Had to chip it off my plate. LOL! The second... success!
The most difficult thing about this recipe is mustering the patience to caramelize the onions. Don't rush! Take your time; do it right. It makes all the difference. That, and withstanding the pungent aroma of the red wine vinegar as you complete the recipe.
I paired mine with steamed spinach. I was raised with spinach and vinegar (instead of butter, salt, etc.), so pouring a little sauce over my spinach was all I needed. With that, it is a bit of a pungent overload, so you might want to have a nice, mellow starch in addition. Simple rice pilaf might do the trick.
I'm so NOT a cook, but I think I pulled this off with aplomb (the second time). Highly recommended.
