Grilled Tuna with Fire and Ice Salsa

Tuna steak is a delicious treat once in a while, although the large tuna from which steaks are taken is on the high mercury list. This salsa pairs well with any robust fish, so if you’d like a more workaday dish, talk to your local grocery store’s seafood department about the best local, sustainable fish for grilling.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup watermelon, diced
  • 1 cup pineapple, diced
  • 2 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp. minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 tsp. minced jalapeno
  • 4 (8 oz.) tuna steaks, 1” thick
  • ⅛ tsp. salt
  • ⅛ tsp. pepper

Directions

  1. Combine the watermelon, pineapple, lime juice, cilantro and jalapeno in a small bowl and toss gently to combine.
  2. Pat excess moisture from the tuna steaks with a paper towel, and rub a few drops of olive or vegetable oil on each side. Season both sides with salt and pepper.
  3. On a grill over high heat, place the tuna steaks and allow them to remain for 2-3 minutes without moving. Flip the tuna steaks and allow to cook until it reaches a minimum internal temperature of 125ºF (3-5 minutes). If you desire a more well-done steak, reduce the heat to medium low, lower the grill lid, and allow to cook until opaque (3-4 minutes).
  4. Allow the tuna to rest for 2-3 minutes before serving. Top with the salsa.
