Tuesday Dinner

This recipe is what we had tonight for dinner. It was SO good. I'm a huge tuna fan, and would have actually preferred it to be more rare than I made it, but it is delicious. I got the recipe from the Weight Watchers website. (It makes 4 servings and is 4 points per serving, for my fellow WW people!)

Grilled Tuna with Herbed Butter

1 lb. yellowfin tuna, one steak cut to 1-1 1/2 inches thick
1 tsp. olive oil
1 tsp fresh lime juice
1 spray cooking spray
2 Tbsp. butter, softened
1 Tbsp. chives, fresh, freshly chopped
1 Tbsp. parsley, fresh, freshly chopped
1 Tbsp. fresh tarragon, finely chopped
1 tsp. lime zest, fresh, minced
salt and pepper to taste
1 lb. spinach, baby variety, steamed

Coat both sides of fish with oil and lime juice; set aside

Off heat, coat grill with cooking spray; preheat grill to high.

Meanwhile, in a small metal bowl, combine softened butter, chives, parsley, tarragon, lime zest, salt and pepper. Set aside.

Cook tuna on one side for 3 minutes; carefully flip and cook on other side for 3 more minutes for rare, or longer until desired degree of doneness. Place bowl containing butter mixture on grill just until it melts -- you don't want to cook it.

Thinly slice tuna and serve over spinach; drizzle melted herbed butter over top. Yields about 3 ounces of tuna and 1/4 of spinach per serving.
