Broiled Tuna and Mushrooms with Olive Sauce Recipe

Serves/Makes: 4 servings


  • 4 fresh tuna steaks (about 6 ounces each), 1 inch thick
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 8 ounces fresh mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
  • 1 dozen Kalamata or other Greek black olives packed in brine, pitted
  • 1 medium tomato, cored and diced
  • 1 1/2 cups red wine
  • 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, chopped
How to cook Broiled Tuna and Mushrooms with Olive Sauce:
  • Rub tuna steaks with olive oil and season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Set aside.
  • Prepare sauce by heating 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and mushrooms and sauté until mushrooms are golden, about 4 minutes.
  • Add the olives, tomato, red wine, and rosemary and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until wine is reduced to 1 cup, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste and keep warm.
  • Place the tuna steaks on the broiler with rack and broil about 3 minutes per side, until seared on the outside but still slightly pink on the inside.
  • Place each broiled tuna steak on a dinner plate and top with some of the sauce.
