This lovely grilled fish with salsa recipe uses tuna steaks and a salsa like Rubio’s fish tacos – you could use salmon, swordfish, shark, halibut, turbot or any other steaks – also fillets of any type of fish. The only limit is your imagination.
All you need to do is adjust the grilling times – I like to make the salsa early and leave it in the fridge – the flavors infuse nicely and I just love the coldness on the hot fish.
4 tuna steaks
oil for brushing
lemon juice – for brushing
1 garlic clove – peeled and finely chopped
6 ripe tomatoes – diced finely
Small red onion – peeled and diced
2 tablespoon cilantro leaves – chopped finely
2 jalapeno chillies – seeded and chopped finely
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Combine all the salsa ingredients and set aside – chill in the fridge.
Heat your grill – it needs to be very hot.
Sprinkle lemon, dill and pepper over the steaks – brush with oil and cook about 5 minutes either side – brush with oil and season on turning.
You can tell the fish is cooked when it’s firm to the touch. Be careful, as it will be very hot, but you just prod it with a finger and if it feels ‘solid’ then it’s done.
Some people like their tuna steaks slightly undercooked – a little pinker in the middle.
This is superb with some new potatoes and salad.
You could even use Rubio’s lovely mayonnaise mixture – the complete Rubio’s recipe is here.
