I served this Grilled Tuna for a small dinner party and it was quite the hit. The citrus salsa that accompanies the tuna is delicious.

Grilled Tuna with Citrus Salsa
2 medium oranges, peeled and diced (be sure to cut off all white pith)
1 red bell pepper, chopped (seeds removed)
1/2 cup diced red onion
1/4 cup torn fresh mint leaves
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
4 fresh tuna steaks (about 6-ounces each)
olive oil (not included in the nutritional info below)
1 teaspoon ground coriander seed
1. To prepare salsa, in medium bowl mix together oranges, pepper, onion, mint and vinegar. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
2. Heat your grill to high. Oil the grates generously with vegetable oil (not cooking spray), and let heat up. Rub tuna with a little bit of oil, coriander, salt and pepper. Place on grill and cook 4 to 6 minutes, turning just once. It will still be pink in the center.
3. Garnish with salsa.
