This Orange Tuna with Black Bean and Corn Salsa is one of my family’s favorite recipes.
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 has a Tangy Sauce.
You can grill this outside on the grill, but anindoor grill plate will also give you the nice grill marks as well and that is what I used for this recipe.
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. This tasty salsa is slightly sweet and complimented the flavors of the marinade beautifully.
Add a tossed salad and enjoy!
