Grilled Tuna Salad

Ingredients
1
pound fresh or frozen tuna steaks, cut 1 inch thick
3
tablespoons sherry vinegar
2
tablespoons finely chopped shallots
1
tablespoon Dijon-style mustard
2
tablespoons olive oil
1
anchovy fillet, rinsed and mashed
 
Salt and ground black pepper
8
ounces tiny new potatoes, quartered
6
ounces fresh green beans
6
cups Bibb or romaine lettuce leaves
3/4
cup thinly sliced radishes
1/2
cup nioise olives or ripe olives, pitted
 
Finely chopped red onion (optional)
 
Cracked black pepper (optional)

Directions

  1. Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels. For dressing, in small bowl combine vinegar and shallots. Whisk in mustard. Whisking constantly, add oil in a steady thin stream. Stir in anchovy; season to taste with salt and pepper. Remove 1 tablespoon dressing to brush fish; set aside remaining dressing until ready to serve.
  2. Preheat broiler on high setting. Brush the 1 tablespoon dressing over all sides of fish. Place fish on greased unheated rack of broiler pan. Broil about 4 inches from heat for 8 to 12 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, gently turning once halfway through broiling. (Or grill fish on the greased rack of uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 8 to 12 minutes, gently turning once halfway through grilling.) Slice fish.
  3. Meanwhile, in covered medium saucepan cook potatoes in a large amount of boiling water for 7 minutes. Add green beans; cook about 2 minutes more or until potatoes are tender. Drain and cool slightly.
  4. Arrange fish, potatoes, green beans, lettuce leaves, radishes, and olives on a platter. Sprinkle with red onion and black pepper. Serve with remaining dressing. Makes 4 servings.
