Directions:

1

In a medium bowl, whisk together the lemon zest and juice, honey, shallot, garlic, and oregano.

2

Whisking constantly, slowly add the oil in a steady stream. Season with the salt and pepper. Rinse the tuna steaks and pat them dry with paper towels.

3

Arrange them in a baking dish and drizzle with 1/2 cup of the lemon mixture. Turn to coat. Heat a grill or grill pan on high.

4

Transfer the tuna to the grill or pan. Cook to the desired doneness, about 4 minutes per side for medium-rare.

5

Meanwhile, to make the tomato salsa, add the tomatoes, capers, and arugula to the remaining lemon mixture and toss.

6

Serve the salsa with the tuna.

7

And the next time, try...

8

Drizzling the lemon mixture over cooked chicken cutlets or pork chops. It's a faster-and even more flavorful-alternative to marinating.

When you find yourself with day-old bread, make this Tuscan salad, known as panzanella. Coarse-textured, good-quality bread works best. Feel free to improvise by adding olives, anchovies, or canned tuna.

For a delicious appetizer, serve the grilled tomatoes atop toasted pieces of Italian bread. Or use them in a grilled sandwich with fresh mozzarella and basil.
