Tuna with Grilled Cherry Vinaigrette and Couscous

Directions

  1. If using wooden skewers, soak in water 30 minutes. Thaw tuna, if frozen. Thread cherries onto long skewers. Grill cherry skewers, covered, over medium heat 5 minutes or until cherries are lightly charred, turning once. Remove from skewers. Halve half of the cherries; set aside.
  2. For marinade, in a blender or food processor combine remaining cherries and next seven ingredients (through cayenne pepper). Cover and blend or process until smooth. With blender or processor running, slowly add oil in a steady stream until thickened.
  3. Rinse tuna; pat dry. Place tuna in a resealable plastic bag set in a shallow dish. Remove half of the marinade for vinaigrette; cover and chill until ready to serve. Pour remaining marinade over tuna. Seal bag; turn to coat tuna. Marinate in the refrigerator 30 to 60 minutes.
  4. In a medium saucepan bring broth to boiling. Stir in couscous; remove from heat. Cover and let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork. Stir in reserved cherries, spinach, and hazelnuts.
  5. Drain tuna, reserving marinade. Grease grill rack. Grill tuna, covered, over medium heat 8 to 12 minutes or just until fish flakes, turning and brushing once with marinade.
  6. Slice tuna. Drizzle vinaigrette over tuna and couscous and sprinkle with ricotta salata.

From the Test Kitchen

*Tip

To toast hazelnuts, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spread nuts in a single layer in a shallow baking pan. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light brown, stirring once to brown evenly. Cool slightly. Place the warm nuts on a clean kitchen towel; rub with the towel to remove the loose skins.
