Recipe of the Week

Grilled Tuna and Watermelon Salsa

Ingredients (Serves 4)

  • 4 4 oz. steaks of fresh or frozen tuna, thawed
  • 1  tbsp. olive oil
  • 1  tsp. chili powder
  • 2  cups of watermelon, diced
  • 1  ripe mango, peeled and diced
  • ½  English cucumber, peeled and chopped
  • 2½ tbsp. red onion, diced
  • 1  jalapeño, minced and seeded (optional)
  • 1-2 garlic cloves, minced
  • Zest of one lime
  • Juice of ½ lime
  • ¼  cup of chopped fresh cilantro

Directions

  1. Pat dry each tuna steak.  Lightly brush each steak on both sides with olive oil and evenly sprinkle the chili powder on both sides of each steak. Set aside.
  2. Bring the grill to a very high temperature.  While the grill is heating, make the salsa by adding each of the remaining ingredients into a medium-sized bowl in the order listed.  Toss gently and set aside.
  3. Once the grill has reached a high temperature, place the steaks in the hottest section of the grill.  To seal in the juices, sear the steaks for 90 seconds on each side.
  4. Remove the steaks from the high heat and to a cooler section of the grill.  Cook for an additional 6-8 minutes, with the grill covered, checking once to see if done.  The fish should begin to flake when tested with a fork and the center should still be slightly pink.
  5. Quickly remove the tuna from the grill and let rest for 5 minutes.
  6. Place one steak on a plate and top with the watermelon salsa.

Tip

  • Consider serving this entrée alongside a serving of an ancient grain such as farro or on top of whole grain tortilla chips.

About Commercial Printing

You may choose any commercial printer that fits your needs.  You may choose to compare prices between local commercial printers such as Documart, FastSigns, FedEx Print and Ship Center, OfficeMax, OfficeDepot. You may also choose to compare the services of online commercial printers such as Vistaprint or Signs.com. Doing research on Google is recommended.

Commercial printers require vector files to produce items such as banners and posters. All vector files below are set up as full bleed, which means that the color and art goes all the way to edge.

If you are displaying a banner outdoors, it is recommended that you place your banner order with a request for grommets and wind slits. String/rope/cord does not hold up to the varying Colorado weather conditions. It is recommended to install banners with baling wire or metal quicklinks/screwlocks, which can be purchased from retailers such as Lowes or Home Depot.
