DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Brush the sides and bottom of a baking dish with some of the olive oil; if using a slow cooker, simply brush the bottom and lower part of the cooking bowl.
  • Scatter the onions on the bottom of the baking dish.
  • Season with salt and pepper; use sea salt for authenticity or kosher salt.
  • Layer potato slices to cover then onions, then season lightly.
  • Alternate as needed until all onions and potatoes are used up.
  • Put the tuna steaks on top of the last layer, then cover with the tomato halves, cut side down.
  • Add the garlic cloves, then pour in the water.
  • Pour the remaining olive oil and red wine vinegar over the tomatoes, then sprinkle the mint and parsley over the entire top.
  • Season as taste dictates with salt and pepper.
  • Cover the baking dish (aluminum foil if the dish doesn't have a cover).
  • Bake until the potatoes are fork tender (usually around 45-60 minutes).
  • Let rest for 10 minutes, serve hot.
