Tuna Steak with Green Olive Salsa & Roasted Peppers

This steak can be a grilled tuna steak or a broiled tuna steak

For the Tuna:

1 pound of fresh tuna, about 1/2 inch thick

1 T. fresh lemon juice

Splash of olive oil

1 T. minced fresh savory or 1 tsp. dried

1 tsp sesame seeds

2 roasted red bell peppers (*See Note below)
(thinly sliced)

For the Salsa:

1/2 C. pitted green olives

5 Scallions, chopped

1 clove of garlic, peeled

1 T. balsamic vinegar

2 tsp. olive oil

2 T. tomato-based salsa

To make the salsa, combine the olives, scallions, vinegar, garlic, olive oil, and tomato salsa in a food processor or blender. Whiz until coarsely pureed; the salsa should be slightly chunky. Set aside.

Preheat the broiler or prepare the grill. Rub the tuna with the lemon juice and olive oil, then sprinkle on the savory and sesame seeds, pressing them into the flesh. Broil or grill the fish until cooked just through, about 3-4 minutes on each side. Serve warm, drizzled with the salsa and sprinkled with the sliced peppers.

*NOTE: To roast peppers, halve, core and seed them. Broil skin side up until the skins are black and charred. Transfer the charred peppers to a bowl & cover with a cloth napkin until they cool, at least 20 min. Then, scrape off and discard the charred skin.
