Basil Tomatoe Tuna Steak

Submitted by: ROBERTAB3

Introduction

Incredibly moist and flavorful way to eat tuna...a change from most oriental styles. Goes very nicely with Italian vegetable bake from this site (add a little balsamic to this) .

  • Loved this recipe! I would recommend marinating the steaks for a bit first...balsamic and a bit of lemon juice works nicely. I also prefer to broil first without the cheese to roast the tomatoes just a bit, then add the cheese to melt. - 1/19/11

  • I didn't have fresh basil - so I used dill and sprinkle a touch of lime juice on it. I put fresh spinach on top of the tomatoes ... It was absolutely scrumptious !! - 10/29/09
