Grilled Tuna Steak with Fresh Tomato Salsa

This Grilled Tuna Steak with Fresh Tomato Salsa comes together in just 20 minutes and is moist and tender with a hint of freshness.


  • 4 ea., 10-12 oz., center cut tuna steaks
  • 4 ripe seasonal tomatoes
  • 1 clove garlic finely minced
  • ½ jalapeno pepper seeded and cut into small dices
  • 2 tbs. chopped fresh leaf cilantro
  • 2 tbs. chopped fresh parsley
  • 2tbs. white onion chopped fine and rinsed under cold water
  • 2 tbs. chopped scallions
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 3 oz. Colavita Extra-Virgin Olive Oil


  1. Preheat grill to medium high, clean the surface well and brush with oil just before you place the tuna on it.
  2. Brush the tuna with Colavita EVOO just prior to cooking. Place the tuna steaks on the grill surface. Turn after 4 minutes and cook for 8 – 10 minutes. If it’s a little pink at the center that’s fine as overcooked tuna and fish tends to be very dry.
  3. To make the sauce, simply roughly chop the tomatoes and salt them and place in a mixing bowl. Add all the remaining ingredients and mix well with a spoon.
  4. Once the tuna steaks are cooked, plate them and spoon a generous amount of the sauce over the top.
