4 6-oz. tuna steaks
1 c. kalamata olives, pitted, sliced
3 cloves fresh garlic, minced
1 c. grape tomatoes, halved
2 Tbsp. capers, drained
1/4 c. fresh herbs (basil, parsley), hand torn
1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1/2 c. feta cheese, diced
sea salt to taste
fresh ground pepper to taste
What to do:
1. In a medium-sized mixing bowl combine olives, garlic, tomatoes, capers, herbs, lemon juice, olive oil and feta cheese. Lightly stir ingredients to combine. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
2. Preheat a medium-sized sauté pan over medium-high heat. Season both sides of the tuna steaks lightly with salt and pepper. Add 1 Tbsp. of olive oil to the preheated sauté pan. Carefully add the tuna steaks to the sauté pan.
3. Cook tuna steaks to preferred doneness (tuna cooks very quickly, and is usually served rare). To serve tuna, slice each steak in half and plate them with even amounts of relish on top. Garnish the tuna with the herb oil.
