Tuna steaks in lemon and white wine

Happy Thanksgiving!

May everyone feel lighthearted and blessed–because despite all of our troubles, we have much to be thankful for.

No turkey recipe but I have a few others…My friend Lauren wrote after she read the cod cakes recipe and asked for a tuna recipe…

So here is: Tuna with lemon and wine. Use steak-cuts of tuna…yellow fin is very nice for this.

tuna
a little olive oil
or butter or combination of both
some white wine
lemon juice
onions
garlic
parsley
capers
olives
red hot pepper, if desired
(may use a little paprika for color, or finish the dish with some diced sweet pimento)

On high heat pour the olive oil into a heavy fry pan, add sliced onions and garlic–when bubbling add the tuna and cook 2-3 minutes on each side.

Add white wine and lemon juice and lower heat. Cook for a few more minutes and then add parsley, capers, olives. Season with salt and pepper. Serve hot. (Nice on a bed of rice with some of the juice…)
