Fresh tuna is readily available at all fish markets and in most
supermarkets today. The freshest, best tuna has deep red flesh. If the tuna
is turning dark around the edges, don't buy itQit's not fresh.

1. Preheat oven to 350!F.

2 Cut off about 1/4 inch from the top of each clove of garlic; discard.
Place garlic cloves in a small ramekin. Drizzle with white wine and I
teaspoon pure olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, cover with foil and
bake for 1 hour, or until garlic is soft. Remove and cool to room

3. Sprinkle both sides of tuna with black pepper. Heat remaining 2
tablespoons pure olive oil in a non stick skillet. Sear tuna over
medium-high heat and cook for 3 minutes per side for medium rare. Remove
from pan, cool and cut crosswise into 8 thin slices. Reserve.

4 Slice the top third off each roll, lengthwise; reserve tops. Hollow out
the center of each roll. Brush insides with the extra-virgin olive oil.
Squeeze the roasted garlic cloves from their skins and spread over the
inside of each roll.
