Seared Albacore Tuna Loin
1 1/2 pounds of Albacore tuna loin*
2 tablespoons Persian Lime Olive Oil
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
*If you do not have access to fresh tuna or albacore tuna loins, this recipe would work equally well with fresh halibut, snapper, sea bass, grouper, swordfish, or rock cod, or even salmon. Should you choose to substitute a different fish, extend the cooking time for an additional minute per side to fully cook, but do not over cook the fish.
Prepare a medium grill and rub the albacore tuna loin with olive oil. Season the tuna loin liberally with salt and pepper. Grill the loin for approximately 3 minutes per side over indirect heat for medium rare. (Tuna loin should be seared but left rare in the center, so don’t over cook!) With a very sharp knife, cut the loin into separate serving sizes. Serve on top of steamed vegetables or a fresh salad.
