Grilled Tuna with Farro Salad

Submitted by: SAMVICARS

Introduction

Rich in omega-3, tuna is a great addition to any diet. Grilled tuna is given a boost of flavor by a brief rest in an orange marinade but any longer than 30 minutes and you’ll start to overpower the tuna’s delicate flavor.

Ingredients

    For Tuna:
    1/2 cup chopped fresh basil

    1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
    1 teaspoon minced garlic
    4 (5-ounce) Yellowfin tuna steaks

    For Salad:
    2 1/4 cups boiling water
    1 cup uncooked farro
    11/3 cups chopped tomato
    2/3 cup chopped roasted red pepper
    1/2 cup chopped red onions

For the tuna:
Combine first 6 ingredients in a glass baking dish; add tuna and turn to coat with marinade. Chill no more than 30 minutes.

For the salad:
Bring water to a boil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add farro and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, covered, 30 minutes or until farro is tender. Turn off the heat and let stand 10 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine remaining salad ingredients. Drain farro before adding to bowl; gently toss to coat.

Prepare indoor or stove-top grill for medium-high heat. Remove tuna from marinade, discarding marinade, and pat dry. Rub tuna steaks 1 tablespoon vegetable oil and grill each side 2 minutes for medium-rare. Serve the tuna over the barley salad.
