Number of Servings: 4


    3 tablespoons drained capers
    1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
    1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
    3/4 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
    8 tablespoons olive oil
    4 tuna steaks (about 3/4 inch thick)


Light the grill or heat the broiler. In a small glass or stainless-steel bowl, mash the capers with a fork. Stir in the lemon juice, parsley, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper and then 6 tablespoons of the oil.
Coat the tuna with the remaining 2 tablespoons oil. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Grill or broil the tuna for 4 minutes. Turn and cook until done to your taste, 3 to 4 minutes longer for medium rare. Serve the tuna topped with the sauce.

    Pretty tasty but I used a lot less olive oil, and I managed to overcook my tuna a bit in the broiler so keep an eye on it! I think my tuna would have been done at 3 minutes on the second side... - 8/2/09
