This Orange Tuna with Black Bean and Corn Salsa has a Tangy Sauce.
Tuna is a favorite fish in our house. We love the texture of it and it takes only seconds to prepare (good quality tuna can be served rare, so it takes just a couple of minutes on each side.) This Orange Tuna with Black Bean and Corn Salsa is one of our favorites.
You can grill this outside on the grill, but an indoor grill plate will also give you the nice grill marks as well and that is what I used for this recipe. (affiliate link)
I use mine all the time when the weather is not so great outside for a BBQ. Since it was raining cats and dogs, indoor grilling it was.
The sauce is so easy. It is a combination of orange juice, lite soy sauce, garlic, cracked black, and lemon juice.
There was marinade left over, so I added some extra OJ to the marinade and it also made a very good low cal, oil free salad dressing.
Just a couple of minutes on each side on the grill pan and the I topped it with some Paul Newman Black Bean and Corn Salsa. (affiliate link) This tasty salsa is slightly sweet and complimented the flavors of the marinade beautifully.
Add a tossed salad and enjoy!
