Grilled Tuna with Cucumber Ginger Salsa

Hopefully you are on our mailing list and received our latest recipe card featuring this delightful dish.  I absolutely love making this in summer!  You can also actually pan sear the tuna if you don’t have a grill or want to make all year round.  It is simple to prepare and is sooo delicious.  I made it last night for dinner so here is the recipe in case you didn’t receive the recipe via snail mail…

4 tbsp. Ponzu sauce

2 tbsp. sesame oil

4 (4 oz.) Tuna fillets

1/2 cup chopped cucumber

1 avocado, pitted, peeled and chopped

1/2 red onion, finely chopped

1 tbsp. pickled ginger for sushi, chopped

1 tbsp. lime juice

1 tbsp. finely chopped fresh cilantro

In a shallow dish combine Ponzu sauce and oil.  Add fillets: cover and refrigerate 1 hour, turning occasionally.

To make the salsa – combine in a bowl the cucumber, onion, avocado, ginger, lime juice and cilantro.  Toss and set aside.

Coat grill rack with non-stick spray and grill fillets for 3-5 minutes per side to desired doneness (or cook with left-over sauce in frying pan on med-high heat so both sides of tuna are seared but inside is still raw).

Slice tuna and top with salsa!  Enjoy!
