Ingredients
  • Gremolata:
  • 1 cup finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 lemon zested
  • 1 orange, zested
  • 2 large cloves garlic, very finely chopped
  • 2 pounds tuna steaks
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary, leaves chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
  • 1 lemon, juiced
Directions
Gremolata:

Before cooking the tuna, combine the parsley, lemon zest and orange zest in a small bowl. Stir in the finely chopped garlic and reserve.

Cut the tuna into bricks about 3 inches long and 2 inches wide, 3 pieces per portion. Season the tuna with rosemary, salt and pepper, to taste. Drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil and let stand for 10 to 15 minutes. When ready to cook, heat a healthy drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot add the tuna and cook for 2 minutes on each side for rare, 3 to 4 minutes on each side for opaque fish. Douse the pan with the lemon juice. Arrange the fish on a platter, scatter the gremolata over the top and serve.
