Step 1

Prepare a fire in a charcoal grill or preheat a broiler.

In a bowl, stir together the sun-dried tomatoes, olives, mint, garlic, 3 tablespoons of the olive oil, the lemon juice, oil from the tomatoes and the 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Set aside.

Brush the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil evenly over both sides of the tuna fillets. Season with salt and pepper.

Place the fillets on the grill rack, or place on a rack in a broiler pan and slip under the broiler. Grill or broil, turning once, for 3 minutes per side for medium-rare, or until done to your liking.

Transfer the tuna fillets to warmed individual plates and spoon an equal amount of the sauce over each fillet. Serve immediately.

This recipe yields 4 servings.

Take care not to overcook the fish. Despite its similarity to steak, tuna dries out faster.
