Grilled Tuna With Avocado, Ginger And Lime

This is a nice change of pace…as long as you have either a barbecue or simply heat a grill pan on the stove top. Add a glass of Chardonnay and the pairing is unbelieveable.

 

Vinaigrette

  • 1 jalapeno, seeds removed and chopped fine
  • 2 tsp. grated fresh ginger
  • 1 garlic clove, grated
  • juice from 4 limes
  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 tsp. sugar
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • pinch of kosher salt and pepper

Whisk all the ingredients together until well combined.

  • 4 blocks of sushi-quality tuna
  • 4 ripe avocados, halved, peeled, pitted and sliced
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro
  • 3  1/2 cups greens of your choice

Preheat grill on high heat or heat grill pan on stove-top until hot. Season the tuna with some kosher salt and pepper. Lay the tuna on the hot grill and sear for 1 minute on each side until a slight crust. Drizzle the tuna with a couple of teaspoons of the vinaigrette. Transfer to 4 plates with the salad greens and avocado slices arranged in a circle and drizzle with the dressing, serving the rest on the side to be added as wanted.

As I said, add a glass of chilled Chardonnay and you have a feast fit for a king .
