Grilled Tuna on Spinach Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Kim127

The spice rub for this tuna gives it a great flavor that is made better by the salad! From Good Housekeeping 2000. This will also work well for salmon steaks! The recipe calls for radishes, but I skip them and its still good.

A very nice combination. I can envision using a reduced portion as 1st course for a dinner party. I cooked the tuna in a dry non-stick skillet rather than grilling with no problems. I did use the radishes because we like them- they also add color. Only thing I will do differently next time is add a clove of minced garlic to the salad dressing because I think this would add to the dish, and because we love garlic. Thanks for posting.
