Orange Tuna With Black Bean and Corn Salsa

This Orange Tuna with Black Bean and Corn Salsa is one of my family’s favorite fish 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.)  Orange tuna with black bean and corn salsa

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.Orange tuna with black bean salsa

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!
