Look for Atlantic bigeye or yellowfin tuna caught using the troll or pole-and-line method.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine oil, garlic, anchovy fillets, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook for 5 minutes or until garlic begins to sizzle; remove from heat. Set aside.

Step 2

Heat a grill pan over high heat. Lightly coat tuna with cooking spray. Sprinkle with salt and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add to pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Remove from pan.

Step 3

Combine 1 teaspoon oil mixture and Broccolini; toss. Add to pan; cook 6 minutes or until tender, turning occasionally. Place 1 tuna steak and 4 ounces Broccolini on each of 4 plates. Drizzle each serving with about 1 1/2 tablespoons oil mixture. Serve with lemon wedges.

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.
