Directions See How It's Made
- Prepare charcoal or gas grill.
- Melt butter in pan and add soy sauce.
- Dip tuna steaks in butter/soy sauce mixture, sprinkle with salt and pepper and grill over medium-high heat for 4- 7 minutes per side.
- While grilling, baste tuna often with the butter/soy mixture.
- Cooking time will vary depending on the heat of the fire and the thickness of the tuna steaks.
- The tuna should still be a little pink in the middle when done.
- This recipe is simple but very tasty.
- The butter/soy sauce baste really compliments the flavor of the fresh tuna.
- My good friend Scooter came up with this recipe and told me to keep it a secret.
- I'm sure he won't mind if I share it with a few subscribers; besides, it is really too good to keep secret.
- The Skinny: Do not substitute for the butter.
- You can use reduced sodium soy sauce if you wish.
- For Dagwood.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Butter bread and lightly toast.
- Thinly slice the figs removing stems.
- Cut loaf horizontally down the middle.
- Spread all of the cream cheese on both sides of the bread.
- Layer half of the figs, all of the ham (folded in half and overlapping across the sandwich), and turkey (layered same way as the ham).
- Add a small amount of olive oil and oregano to taste.
- Add all of the slices of cheddar and Jack cheese on top.
- I criss cross them like a checker board.
- Finally top with the remaining figs and put the top of the loaf on.
- Cut vertically into 4-5 slices and serve.
- Best served fresh while the bread is still warm from the toasting, but if you refrigerate and eat later, microwaving quickly (about 10-15 seconds) seems to do the trick.
