Grilled Tuna and Asparagus

Easy, fast, and delicious. Three of my favorite things.

These tuna steaks are from Trader Joe's, frozen and marinated in cilantro, garlic, and a few other yummy things. Along with some fresh asparagus and yukon potatoes.

I par-cooked the potatoes before slicing them in half, drizzling with macadamia nut oil, salt & pepper, and threading on skewers.

The asparagus gets a good drizzle of macadamia oil and rubbed in (good for dry hands) and a very generous amount of salt and pepper.

Everything goes on the grill for 2-3 minutes per side.

I've always liked Mendocino Mustard's Hot & Sweet on seared tuna. I recommend it if you can find it in your grocery store. Plus a bit of parm and lemon juice for the vegetables.

This Dona Paula Malbec, a BevMo purchase, is delicious and went really well with the meal.
