    FlemishMinx's Note:

    This is a a favorite at our house with all the flavors that we love. I would say don't even try this with frozen tuna (it just isn't the same), only fresh will do!

      This was smashing! I didn't change a thing. A great summer dish, with a sunny mediteranean flavor... Thank you for this delicious recipe!

      The sauce makes this a special dish! I cooked 2 steaks & used some diced tinned tomatoes that were leftover from another recipe - otherwise, no changes. Thanx Minx!
