This was my first experience eating broccolini (I don't know why not!). This was a really fast meal. I used thawed frozen tuna steaks. My young boys love fish and ate this right up. The garlic drizzle was the best. I didn't tell my husband about the anchovies b/c he gets weirded out by them, but he unknowingly loved it! Will make again! Good for entertaining b/c seems pretty impressive even though it's super easy.
Grilled Tuna and Broccolini with Garlic Drizzle
Look for Atlantic bigeye or yellowfin tuna caught using the troll or pole-and-line method.
