Why I Love This Recipe

Create an easy, yet elegant meal for weekend entertaining – or for dinner tonight. Simply serve this savory, roasted red pepper sauce over grilled or broiled finfish (tuna, swordfish, mahi mahi or any variety of finfish). With roasted red peppers on your pantry shelf, this nourishing, made-from-scratch sauce takes little effort. A good source of beta carotene (forms vitamin A) and excellent sour of vitamin C – with little fat – this sauce is a flavorful way to get the nutrient-rich benefits of “red.”

Ingredients You'll Need

2 yellowfin tuna steaks (about 1 1/2 pounds)
2 teaspoons olive oil
Freshly grated pepper, to taste
1 cup canned roasted red bell pepper
1/4 cup chopped green onion
1 tablespoon canned tomato paste
1 garlic clove, chopped
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Parsley sprigs, for garnish


Brush tuna with olive oil; sprinkle with pepper to taste. For every inch (in thickness) of tuna steak, broil or grill for 10 minutes. Turn once to cook evenly. Purée roasted red bell pepper, green onion, tomato paste, garlic clove and pepper flakes in a blender or food processor. Serve sauce over cooked tuna; garnish with parsley.
