Line a 10" by a few inches deep baking tray with aluminum foil tucking it into all corners. Cut enough foil to leave a large overlap; this will fold back across the tray.

Evenly distribute a few tablespoons of olive oil in the tray. Cut the tuna almost in half horizontaly, leaving an inch or so to hold the fish together.

Evenly stuff each steak with a diced clove of garlic in each. Place steaks in the tray. Evenly distribute onion, peppers, jalapeno pepper and garlic into the tray, covering the steaks.

Place a sprig of dill on top of each steak. Drizzle remaining olive oil over the steaks and the veg, amount of oil to use is personal preference, this makes an excellent "gravy" when cooked. Fold the foil over the tray being sure to cover tuna and loosely tuck it in. Place in the oven for about 40 mins, for thicker steaks about 45/50 mins. Remove and serve on a bed of white rice. Drain stock from tray and serve.

Pan-Seared Tuna with Lime Pepper Crust
 
  • 4 tuna steaks (3/4 to 1-inch thick, about 6 ounces each)
  • Zest and juice of one (1) lime
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme leaves
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoons coarsely-ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
NOTE: You can substitute 1 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon zest and 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice in place of the lime.

Rinse the tuna steaks and pat dry with paper towels. Grate the zest from the lime (you should have about 1 1/2 teaspoons), then squeeze the juice and set aside.

In a small bowl, combine lime zest, thyme, pepper and salt; stir to mix. Lightly rub both sides of the tuna steaks with olive oil. Rub the seasoning mix on the tuna steaks; coating them well.

Using a heavy bottomed sauté pan or a cast-iron pan, warm the olive oil. Increase the heat to high and place the tuna in the pan. Sear for 1 minute, then turn over carefully, reducing the heat to medium. Sear the other side for 1 more minute until medium rare. (Do not overcook the tuna or the meat will become dry and lose its flavor.) Pour the lime juice over the tuna steaks right after you take them from the stove, then serve.

Aisian-style Kale
 
Ingredients:
  • 3/4 pound (1 large bunch) kale*
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 small shallot, minced
  • 1 to 2 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup (2 thin) minced scallions, both white and light green parts
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated ginger root
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
Directions:

Wash the kale thoroughly to remove all grit. Discard the tough ribs, and coarsely chop the kale leaves.

In a large skillet or heavy wok, heat the sesame oil over medium heat. Add the shallot, garlic, scallions and ginger root and cook for about 1 minute to release the aromas. Add the kale a bunch at a time and cook 3 to 4 minutes, or until the leaves have softened a bit but the kale retains its shape. Remove from heat and add the soy sauce. Divide among individual plates, sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds, if using, and serve hot.

ABOUT COOKED KALE: Some people like their greens on the softer side. For this recipe, author Robyn Webb suggests two techniques to achieve that result:

After the 3 to 4 minutes' cooking time (but before the soy sauce is mixed in), add water, cover and let steam to desired texture. Continue the recipe with the soy sauce step as stated in the recipe directions.

The kale can first be plunged into boiling water and cooked for 3 to 4 minutes, then drained. Proceed with cooking the shallots and then add the kale as stated in the recipe directions.
