These tuna steaks are grilled up hot and fast and served with an great Italian-style roasted pepper sauce. Watch the tuna very closely while it grills. You will want to take it off the moment it's cooked through the middle and not a second later.

Yield: Serves 6
- 6 8-ounce tuna steaks
- 3/4 cup olive oil
- 1/2 cup parsley, minced
- 1/2 cup marinated roasted peppers
- 1/2 cup scallions, sliced thinly
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons capers
- 2 tablespoons fresh oregano, minced or 2 teaspoons dried oregano

Combine 1/2 cup olive oil with parsley, roasted peppers, scallions, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, capers, oregano, salt and pepper in a saucepan. Simmer over low temperature while stirring until completely mixed. Remove from heat and set aside. Coat tuna steaks with remaining olive oil and lemon juice. Cover and let sit for 30 minutes. Preheat grill as hot as you can get it. Place tuna steaks on oiled grill and cook for about 4 to 5 minute per side or until done. Tuna steaks are done then the meat is opaque through the middle. Do not over cook tuna. Serve with roasted pepper sauce spooned over top.
