Step 1

Prepare the Tuna: Remove the leaves from the rosemary sprigs. Marinate the sliced tuna with the rosemary leaves, olive oil and lemon zest and juice for about 1 hour.

Prepare the Splat: Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Peel the zest from the lemon, using a vegetable peeler, and finely julienne. Juice the lemon. Combine the lemon zest and juice, rosemary, garlic, hot pepper, salt and oil in a heatproof bowl.

Place the tomatoes on a baking sheet or jelly-roll pan and roast for 12 minutes. Immediately place the roasted tomatoes into the heatproof bowl. Smash them with a fork and incorporate the other ingredients. The intense heat of the tomatoes will cook the other ingredients.

Start a fire in a grill. Grill the tuna for 2 minutes on each side, until pink inside.

Serve immediately with Tomato Splat.
