marinated tuna skewers
spiedini di tonno marinato
TOTAL TIME: 20 minutes plus marinating
MAKES: 4 servings
A simple marinade of soy sauce, mustard, yogurt, and basil, adds a lot of flavor to tuna skewers. Grilled zucchini would be a delicious accompaniment.
- 1/3 cup plain yogurt
- 3 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil leaves
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 1 1/3 pound (1-inch-thick) tuna steak, cut into 32 (1-inch) cubes
- Fine sea salt
- Freshly ground white pepper
- Olive oil for grill
Prepare a charcoal grill for direct-heat cooking over medium-hot charcoal (medium-high heat for gas).
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together yogurt, basil, soy sauce and mustard. Add tuna and toss to coat. Let marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes, then thread tuna onto 8 skewers.
Season skewers with salt and pepper. Grill on lightly oiled grill rack, turning frequently, until fish is cooked, 4 to 5 minutes for medium-rare.
