Who says you can only eat fish in the summer time? I try to cook light, even in the winter months. I check out the deals at our seafood counter, and when something's on special, I grab it as quickly as I can and scour my cookbooks for a fabulous recipe. I often have a list of seafood dishes I'd like to try, and mark them off the list as fish becomes available. But I'm not afraid to admit that every now and then I break down and buy frozen, only because I can't count on the fresh varieties all the time. And, being a coastal chick, I need to fulfill my seafood craving every so often! Enjoy this hearty meal year-round, and change up the fish to see what you like best!
4 tuna steaks, cut 3/4-inch thick
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 sweet onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 plum tomatoes, chopped
2 tablespoons orange marmalade
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Place the fish in a baking dish sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Bake for 6-8 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and garlic and saute for 1 minute. Add the tomatoes. Stir in the marmelade and vinegar. Cook until of a glaze consistency. Serve over the fish.
