Seared Tuna

  1. Combine all ingredients except tuna to make vinaigrette.
  2. Marinade tuna in vinaigrette for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Grill tuna for 1-2 minutes on each side over a hot grill. The tuna flesh should be pink inside. Don't let it overcook.
  4. If you are also preparing our zoodles recipe, top tuna with 2 tablespoons of the white wine-lemon sauce from that recipe. Otherwise, squeeze on fresh lemon juice or drizzle with your favorite vinaigrette.

Roasted Red Potatoes

  1. Place potatoes in a 9 x 13" baking dish.
  2. Drizzle potatoes with oil. Sprinkle with the garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper. Toss gently to coat.
  3. Bake at 450°F for 20-30 minutes, or until potatoes are golden brown and tender.
