Prep: 15 minutes; Cook: 35 minutes; other: 10 minutesTurkey served with tuna sauce certainly isn't a common flavor combo for the American palate, but give it a try. The pairing of flavors truly is tasty. It's traditionally served chilled, but we served the sauce at room temperature over warm turkey. The sauce is delicious over chicken, too.

Cut tenderloins diagonally into 1-inch-thick medallions. Spoon sauce over sliced turkey, and sprinkle with parsley. Serve warm.
