Grilled Tuna Skewers with Tomato-Black Olive Relish

Yield 4 servings (serving size: 2 skewers and 2/3 cup relish)
The slightly acidic flavor of the tomato-and-black olive relish contrasts nicely with the rich taste of the grilled tuna. We suggest serving this dish with an assortment of grilled vegetables and saffron rice.

  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh oregano
  • 2 tablespoons ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 4 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/2 pounds tuna steaks (about 1 inch thick), cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 small red onions, each cut into 8 (1-inch) pieces
  • 3 lemons, each cut into 8 wedges
  • Cooking spray
  • Tomato-Black Olive Relish
