 Ingredients List

  • 1/4 c Fresh basil leaves -- firmly
  • Packed
  • 2/3 c Mild olive oil
  • 2 tb Balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tb Soy sauce
  • 1/2 ts Fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/4 ts Sugar
  • 1/4 ts Salt
  • 4 Whole tuna steaks
  • 1/2 c Banana -- sliced
  • 1/2 c Pineapple -- diced
  • 1/2 c Mango -- diced
  • 1/2 c Papaya -- diced
  • 2 tb Fresh cilantro leaves --
  • Chopped
  • 2 tb Butter
  • 2 tb Lemon juice
  • 1 tb Sugar


Place the basil leaves, olive oil, vinegar, soy sauce, pepper, sugar, salt
and 2 tablespoons hot water in a blender and puree. Arrange the tuna steaks
in a baking dish large enough to hold them in a single layer. Pour the
marinade over the fish. Cover and marinate for 3-4 hours in the
refrigerator - turning the steaks occasionally. Prepare coals for grilling
for preheat the broiler.

Drain the tuna steaks and grill them over medium-hot coals or broil 4-5
inches from he heat until charred on the outside but still pink in the
center - about 3 minutes - turning the steaks once. Do not overcook. Remove
from the heat and place the steaks on warmed dinner plates. Melt 2
tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add to the
skillet the banana, pineapple, mango, papaya, fresh cilantro leaves, lemon
juice and sugar.

Saute just until the mixture is heated through - about 30 seconds. Do not
overcook. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Spoon
the sauteed fruit mixture over the tuna and serve immediately.
