Albacore Tuna Sliders

Ingredients

  • 1 pound albacore tuna loin (ask for a piece off the front end, for even thickness)
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons old bay seasoning

  • 1 medium tomato, thinly sliced
  • 4 slider buns
  • 1/2 cup tartar sauce
  • 1 cup arugula

Prep: 1. Remove skin from tuna and score flesh with knife, making steaks. Repeat on all sides, but do not cut all way through. 2. Mix soy sauce, olive oil, old bay seasoning, and red pepper flakes in bowl. Brush mixture on all sides of tuna, making sure to get some marinade inside scored parts of fish. Marinate at room temperature for 15-20 min. 3. Slice tomato. Make: 1. Preheat grill to high. Make sure grates are clean and well oiled. 2. Put tuna directly on grill and cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side, or 6 minutes total for rare. 3. During last minute of cooking, toast buns on grill. 4. Slice tuna into four sections along score lines. Serve on buns with sliced tomato, arugula, and tartar sauce.
