Tuna Steaks with Tomato and Basil Raw Sauce

Wanted to share this picture with you! This was my very 1st food picture that I took when I started my obsession with taking pictures of my food. This was taken back in 2006: (I think my pictures now are a little better than back in 2006)!
Tuna Steaks with Tomato and Basil Raw Sauce

Oh and you know I have the recipe for you! (As always)


Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling, plus 2 to 3 tablespoons
4 (1-inch) tuna steaks, 6 to 8 ounces each
Salt and pepper
6 plum tomatoes, chopped
1 small red onion, chopped
A handful parsley leaves, chopped
1/2 cup torn or chopped fresh basil leaves, about 10

Heat a grill pan or indoor/outdoor grill to high. Drizzle extra-virgin olive oil over the tuna steaks spread it around then season with salt and pepper.

Combine tomatoes, onions, parsley and basil in a bowl. Dress with extra-virgin olive oil, enough to coat the tomatoes evenly, 2 to 3 tablespoons. Season the tomatoes with salt and pepper, to taste. Let the sauce marinate at least 10 minutes.
Raw Salsa

When you are ready to eat, grill steaks 2 minutes on each side for rare, 3 minutes for medium and 4 for opaque, well done. Stir sauce up then serve liberal amounts of it on top of the steaks
