  • This award-winning, easy-to-prepare recipe complements grilled tuna with a black bean and mango salsa, providing an unusual flavor twist.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon OLD BAY Seasoning
  • 2 pounds tuna steaks
  • Belgian endive leaves and basil sprigs for garnish (optional)
  • Black Bean Mango Salsa:
    • 1 can (14 1/2 ounces) black beans, drained and rinsed
    • 1 medium mango, peeled and diced
    • 1 cup red onion, chopped
    • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
    • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
    • 1/2 cup orange juice
    • 1/4 cup olive oil
    • 1 teaspoon OLD BAY Seasoning

Directions

  1. Salsa: In a large bowl, combine black beans, mango, onion, pepper, cilantro, orange juice, olive oil and OLD BAY. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  2. Mix 1/4 cup oil and 1 tablespoon OLD BAY in small bowl. Brush onto both sides of tuna.
  3. Grill over medium heat 5 to 6 minutes per side or until desired doneness. (Tuna is more moist when its center is still rosy-pink after cooking.) To serve, place tuna on a bed of salsa. Garnish each serving with endive leaves and basil.
  4. Alternative: Tuna may also be cooked in a preheated grill pan. Cook on medium-high heat 5 to 6 minutes per side or until desired doneness.
