Happy Monday AeroGardeners! Let's continue with living a healthier lifestyle this week by making this delicious Tuna and Salad dish. Use fresh herbs straight from your AeroGarden to make Caper-Rosemary Tuna with an Herb Salad. Courtesy of Epicurious.com.
CAPER-ROSEMARY TUNA WITH HERB SALADFor such a rich fish, tuna is a good team player—it takes well to all kinds of seasoning. Here, I give it some tang by marinating it with lemon juice and zest, onions, capers, rosemary, and the most surprising ingredient: some of the juice from the caper jar. Have fun playing around with the herbs in the salad; just make sure not to toss them with the dressing until you're ready to serve—tender leaves wilt quickly.
YIELD: Makes 6 servings
Tuna:6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil1/4 cup fresh lemon juice2 tablespoons drained capers4 teaspoons liquid from capers in jar4 teaspoons finely grated lemon peel2 teaspoons finely minced fresh rosemary1 teaspoon fine sea saltLarge pinch of dried crushed red pepperPinch of sugar1 small onion, quartered through core, thinly sliced crosswise (1 scant cup)6 6-to 7-ounce 1-inch-thick tuna steaks
Salad:2 cups (loosely packed) fresh Italian parsley leaves1/2 cup (loosely packed) assorted fresh herb leaves (such as tarragon, chervil, oregano, celery leaves, and marjoram)1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
For tuna:Whisk first 9 ingredients in large bowl. Stir in onion. Transfer mixture to resealable plastic bag. Add tuna and seal bag, releasing any excess air; turn to coat. Let marinate at room temperature 1 hour, turning occasionally. (Alternatively, chill 4 hours, turning occasionally, then allow to return to room temperature before continuing.)For salad:Mix parsley and other herbs in large bowl. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover and chill while preparing fish.Prepare barbecue (high heat). Brush grill rack with oil. Remove tuna from bag, scraping excess marinade back into bag. Grill until grill marks appear but tuna is still rare in centers, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to plate.Pour marinade into small saucepan. Bring just to simmer.Drizzle 1 teaspoon oil and lemon juice over herb salad; toss to coat. Place 1 tuna steak on each plate. Spoon warm marinade over. Divide herb salad among plates.
