Grilled Tuna and Mushrooms with Mixed Greens

Posted By Chris On January 13, 2008 @ 8:57 pm In Main Dishes,The Mushroom Lover's Cookbook | 2 Comments


Tonight we made a recipe based on one found in the Mushroom Lover’s Mushroom Cookbook. Tuna that’s been brushed with a truffle oil marinade is cooked to medium-well and served over a salad with grilled portobello and shiitake mushrooms.

Chris says:

A little goes a long way with that truffle oil; that really adds a lot of flavor.

Lisa says:

Yeah, you can totally taste it. This dinner rules — I like it better than the other grilled tuna salad we had.

Chris says:

More filling?

Lisa says:

Totally. Of course, that could be because I’m making little sandwiches out of it with this awesome herb baguette.

Grilled Tuna and Mushrooms with Mixed Greens
——————————————–
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp truffle oil
coarse ground sea salt and ground black pepper
2 tuna steaks, about 1″ thick, 8 oz each
8 oz mix of portobello and shiitake mushrooms
6 cups mixed greens
1 bunch chives, thinly sliced
1 medium tomato, cut into 1/2 inch dice

In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, truffle oil, and lemon juice until well blended. Add salt and pepper to taste, measure off 1/3 cup of the dressing, and reserve the rest.
Rinse and pat dry the tuna, then sprinkle both sides with salt and ground pepper. Brush the tuna and mushrooms on both sides with the 1/3 cup of dressing and let rest at room temperature for 30 minutes.
Preheat a grill to hot, or heat a grill-pan over medium heat for 10 minutes. Grill the mushroom slices for about 3 minutes on each side, then set aside. Grill the fish until medium-rare, about 2 1/2 minutes on each side.
Toss the greens, grilled mushrooms, chives, and tomato in a bowl. Add as much of the reserved dressing to the salad as you would like. Divide the salad between two plates, and top each with a tuna steak.
