Grilled Tuna Lampedusa
|Fresh tuna steaks/Black cod steak||1|
|Chopped fresh oregano||1 Tablespoon (1 Bunch)|
|Chopped fresh thyme||1 Tablespoon (1 Bunch)|
|Olive oil||1 Tablespoon|
|Garlic||3 Clove (15 gm), 1 thinly sliced, 2 mashed|
|Bread loaf||1 , unsliced|
Start coals in grill.
Rinse tuna, pat dry.
Brush lightly with oil on both sides.
Sprinkle chopped herbs and sliced garlic over fish.
Slice bread thickly, drizzle one side of each slice with olive oil, and spread with mashed garlic.
Place sprigs of herbs on grill.
Place tuna on top and grill, allowing 5 to 7 minutes for each side, until fish is opaque.
When you turn tuna, put bread slices on grill, oil side down, for 2 to 3 minutes, until crisp and lightly brown.
Give each person some tuna and some bread.
This is supreme but messy finger food, and the use of forks and plates is acceptable, if inauthentic.
