Grilled Tuna with Balsamic Glaze

Source: Martha Stewart Living, July/August


  • 6 tablespoons white wine
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds ripe fresh tomatoes, cut into 1/2-inch dice
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 3/4 pound haricots verts or green beans, stem ends trimmed
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 6 1-inch-thick six-ounce, fresh tuna steaks
  • 1/4 cup loosely packed basil leaves, very thinly sliced


  1. Combine wine, vinegar, sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Simmer until slightly thickened and syrupy, 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from heat, and set aside.

  2. Combine tomatoes, 1 teaspoon olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a medium bowl. Toss, and set aside

  3. Heat grill to medium hot. Combine haricots verts, lemon juice, remaining teaspoon olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a bowl; toss well. Arrange beans on the grill and cook, turning, until just limp and lightly charred, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a serving platter.

  4. Sprinkle remaining teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper on all sides of tuna steaks. Brush wine-and-vinegar mixture on tops and sides of steaks and place, glazed side down, on grill. Grill, brushing with more glaze, until lightly charred, about 3 minutes per side for rare, 6 to 7 for well done. Transfer to serving platter with beans. Add basil to tomatoes, toss, and spoon over tuna. Serve immediately.
