Tuna with Tomato-Watermelon Salsa

By David Harbilas

Yes, watermelon is not a winter fruit.

But why not try to find some and dream of summer?

Salsas are a wonderful alternative to rich, complicated sauces, and this one is as simple as it is healthy.

Add some chopped jalapeno to it and you have a delicious hot and sour combination.

Serves 2

2 tuna steaks, about 6 ounces each
1 cup diced watermelon
2 tomatoes, diced
½ cup diced sweet onion, or red onion
Juice of ½ lemon
½ cup sliced scallions
Extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

In a small bowl, combine the tomato, watermelon, lemon juice, onion, and scallions. Season to taste with salt and pepper and drizzle in about 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil. Let sit for at least 30 minutes. Prepare a grill or grill pan over high heat. Season the tuna with salt and pepper and drizzle with a little olive oil. Grill for 2-3 minutes per side, or until cooked to the desired temperature. Sliced the tuna and serve with the salsa.
