My parents came home with some fresh tuna from the beach. Tuna is a firm, meaty fish that lends itself to bold flavors. This marinade is adapted from the magazine La Cucina Italiana. Their version calls for plain yogurt- which I didn’t have on hand, so I substituted buttermilk. The results were delectable! Try this one, you will love it!
- 1 1/2 lbs. tuna loin, cut into large bite sized chunks
- 1/2 C. buttermilk
- 3 T. basil leaves, sliced thinly
- 1 t. soy sauce
- 1 t. Dijon mustard
- salt and pepper
- oil for the grill
In a shallow dish, combine the tuna chunks, buttermilk, basil, soy sauce, and mustard. Cover and marinate for 30 minutes at room temperature. Thread the chunks onto 8 skewers. Heat the grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Season the skewers with salt and pepper. Oil the grill rack or pan lightly. Grill 4-5 minutes, turning frequently.
