This is lovely. Another recipe from my childhood. Onioned Tuna. I really love it. Tuna is so good. And in this recipe it is really delicious. Let’s cook


A big cut of fresh tuna
1 onion, julienned
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 tomato, chopped
1 bay leaf
1 teaspoon parsley
1 teaspoon oregano
Some salt to taste
Some freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Some extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
½ teaspoon sweet pimentón

To start with our recipe, heat a pan with olive oil. When it is hot, add the onion and sauté it. A couple of minutes later add the garlic and the tomato. Add the spices too: the bay leaf, the parsley and the oregano. Then add the vinegar and water if it is necessary. When the tomato and the onion are a bit done, add the tuna to the pan. Cook it about five minutes on one side and then do the same with the other side. Add the pimentón just at the last moment. Add salt and pepper to taste. Cover the pan and let it simmer for a couple of minutes. The fire must be very low. You can even turn the fire off. It depends on the piece of tuna. If you cook the tuna in small pieces, it will be faster. But I love those big tuna slices.
Serve hot, though cold it is also delicious. And enjoy!
