Seared Tuna with Lemony Potatoes

Seared Tuna with Lemony Potatoes

Tuna goes farther—and is simpler to eat—when it's chunked and mixed with potatoes.

Tossing in a tablespoon of capers would be a lovely addition.

  3. Remove tuna from marinade and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Discard marinade. Grill tuna 3 to 4 minutes per side, until desired degree of doneness.
