Ingredients

  • 2

    tablespoons good olive oil, plus extra for searing

  • cups diced yellow onion (2 onions)

  • 2

    teaspoons peeled, minced fresh ginger

  • teaspoons minced garlic

  • 1

    ripe mango, peeled, seeded, and small diced

  • 1

    nectarine, diced

  • 1

    peach, diced

  • cup freshly squeezed orange juice

  • 2

    teaspoons light brown sugar

  • 1

    teaspoon kosher salt

  • ½

    teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 to 2

    teaspoons minced fresh jalapeno pepper, to taste (1 pepper)

  • 2

    tuna steaks

Directions

Saute the olive oil, onions, and ginger in a large saute pan over medium-low heat for 10 minutes, or until the onions are translucent. Add the garlic and cook for 1 more minute. Add the mangos, reduce the heat to low and cook for 10 more minutes. Add the orange juice, brown sugar, salt, black pepper, and jalapeno; cook for 10 more minutes, until orange juice is reduced, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and add the mint. Serve warm, at room temperature, or chilled. Heat a saute pan over high heat for 5 minutes until very hot. Season the tuna liberally with salt and pepper. When the pan is very hot, add a drizzle of olive oil and then the tuna steaks. Sear for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until the outside is browned, but the inside is very rare. Serve the tuna on top of the mango salsa
