Submitted by: RDAVIDLEE


Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    Ahi Tuna (4-oz)
    medium-ground cornmeal (1.5-oz)
    mandarin oranges (1/4-cup)
    fresh strawberries (1/4-cup)
    raw onions (1/4-cup)

    fresh cilantro (1/4-cup)
    1 jalapeno pepper, finely sliced
    minced garlic (3-tsp)

Directions

To make the polenta, bring two quarts of water to a boil and slowly add 1 pound of medium-ground cornmeal. Stirring constantly, add cornmeal slowly enough that the water doesn't stop boiling. Continue stirring in the same direction, adding more boiling water if necessary, for about a half-hour, until the polenta is about the consistency of mashed potatoes. The polenta is done when it peels easily off the sides.
-
Divide polenta into seperate 1.5-oz "buns" and set to the side in the refrigerator.
-
To make pico de gallo, sautee minced garlic, mandarin oranges, strawberries, onions, tomatoes, bell pepper, cilantro and jalapeno with small amount of no-stick spray.
-
Sear tuna steak on both sides, then bake at 300 degrees until done according to taste.
-
Toast 1.5-oz polenta bun on both sides in lightly oiled frying pan (use no-stick spray).
-
Place tuna steak on the polenta "bun" and spoon pico de gallo over it.
-
Garnish with fresh cilantro.
