Grilled Tuna and Red Onion Salad Recipe

Serves/Makes: 4


  • 12 ounces fresh tuna fillets, cut into 1-inch thick slices
  • 1 large red onion
  • 1 1/2 quarts water
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Juice of 1 small lemon
  • 2 tablespoons fresh Italian parsley, chopped
How to cook Grilled Tuna and Red Onion Salad:
  • Prepare a small charcoal fire. While it is burning, prepare the onion. Peel it and cut it in half lengthwise (from root to stem). Cut each half into 8 segments. Separate the layers of each segment.
  • Bring the water to a boil with 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, add the onions and parboil them for 2 minutes. Drain in a colander. Transfer the onions to a bowl. While still hot, dress them with the vinegar, 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt and the pepper.
  • Lightly oil and salt and pepper the tuna on both sides. Grill tuna to medium-rare, about 2 minutes on each side. Let it cool and break it up into chunks by hand. Season the tuna with 1/4 teaspoon salt, the lemon juice, and the remaining parsley, and let them marinate together for 1 hour. Add tuna to the red onions and serve at room temperature.
