Yield
4 servings (serving size: 1 tuna steak and about 2 1/2 tablespoons aioli)

The aioli features heart-healthy avocado, which contributes vitamin E to this dish. But the real nutritional standout is the tuna, which is rich in niacin.

How to Make It

Step 1

To prepare aioli, combine first 9 ingredients in a blender; process until smooth.

Step 2

To prepare tuna, combine coriander and next 5 ingredients (through pepper) in a small bowl; sprinkle spice mixture evenly over tuna.

Step 3

Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add tuna; cook 2 minutes on each side or until medium-rare or desired degree of doneness. Serve with aioli.

Step 4

Wine Note: Tuna, like salmon, is a fish capable of handling lighter red wines, especially when it's grilled. A to Z Wineworks Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2004 ($16) from Oregon is a great value. Along with red raspberry and strawberry fruit, this supple wine offers peppery spice that marries well with the chili, cumin, and coriander coating the tuna steak. -Jeffery Lindenmuth
