Preparation

Step 1

Drizzle both sides of fish with oil and lime juice; set aside.

Off heat, coat grill with cooking spray; preheat grill to high.

Meanwhile, in a small metal bowl, combine softened butter, chives, parsley, tarragon, lime zest, salt and pepper; set aside.

Cook tuna on one side for 3 minutes; carefully flip and cook on other side for 3 more minutes for rare, or longer until desired degree of doneness. Place bowl containing butter mixture on grill just until it melts — you don’t want to cook it.

Thinly slice tuna and serve over spinach; drizzle melted herb butter over top. Yields about 3 ounces of tuna and 1/4 of spinach per serving.
