RECIPE: GRILLED TUNA WITH TOMATO-MINT VINAIGRETTE

RECIPE: GRILLED TUNA WITH TOMATO-MINT VINAIGRETTE

Serves 4

1-1/2 pounds fresh tuna fillet, preferably ahi tuna from the Atlantic Ocean or Hawaii, cut into 4 equal pieces

Freshly ground white pepper

2 to 3 tablespoons chopped fresh mint or basil leaves, plus 4 sprigs for garnish

1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil

6 ripe Roma (plum) tomatoes

2 cloves garlic, peeled

1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

1 tablespoon good-quality red or white wine vinegar

1 tablespoons minced fresh parsley

2 medium shallots, minced

Salt

Sprinkle the tuna fillets all over with white pepper. In a shallow bowl or dish large enough to hold the tuna pieces side by side, stir together 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and 1 tablespoon of the mint or basil. Turn the tuna pieces in the oil and herbs to coat them. Leave them in the bowl or dish, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours.

Meanwhile, bring a small saucepan of water to a boil. Fill a bowl with ice cubes and water and put it on the counter near the saucepan.

Meanwhile, use a small, sharp knife to core the stem ends of the tomatoes and to score a shallow X on the opposite end of each tomato. When the water boils, use a slotted spoon to lower the tomatoes into the saucepan. Boil just until the tomatoes' skins begin to wrinkle, about 30 seconds. With the slotted spoon, lift the tomatoes out of the water and transfer them to the ice water. Drop the garlic cloves into the pan of boiling water and boil them for about 2 minutes; then, with the slotted spoon, transfer them to the ice water to cool.

When the tomatoes are cool enough to handle, peel off their skins. Cut each tomato in half. Use your fingertip or the handle of a teaspoon to scoop out and discard their seeds. With a small, sharp knife, cut the tomatoes into 1/4-inch dice. Set aside.

Drain the garlic cloves and pat them dry. With a small, sharp knife, cut them lengthwise into thin slices; then, stack the slices and cut lengthwise into thin julienne strips. Set aside.

In a mixing bowl, combine the tomatoes and garlic with the remaining mint or basil, olive oil, lime juice, vinegar, parsley, and shallots. Toss well and season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until about 30 minutes before cooking time.

Preheat an outdoor grill. Meanwhile, remove the tuna and the tomato mixture from the refrigerator and leave them at room temperature until the grill is ready for cooking.

Lightly sprinkle the tuna pieces all over with salt. Grill the tuna about 4 minutes per side until medium rare, testing by cutting into the center of one piece. (If the tuna fillet is very thin, grill it on one side only.)

To serve, spoon the tomato mixture into the centers of 4 serving plates, spreading it evenly. Transfer the tuna pieces to the plates, centering them on top of the tomatoes. Serve immediately.
