Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup chopped pitted kalamata or niçoise olives
  • 1/4 cup diced roasted red bell peppers
  • 2 tablespoons capers, drained
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon anchovy paste, optional
  • 4 (6-ounce) ahi tuna fillets
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preparation

  1. Combine first 6 ingredients in a small bowl, stirring well. Set aside.
  2. Brush tuna with olive oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill over medium-high heat 3 minutes on each side or to desired degree of doneness. Serve immediately with olive mixture.
  3. POUR: A glass of Chardonnay makes a fine pairing with meaty fish such as tuna. Try a full-bodied New World (think Pacific Coast) wine such as Geyser Peak. In the mood for red? Pour Calera Pinot Noir from California's Central Coast.
