Grilled Tuna Skewers with Tomato-Black Olive 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.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 2 skewers and 2/3 cup relish)
