Fast & Easy Dinner: Rosemary Tuna With White Beans

Rosemary Tuna With White Beans


2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 garlic cloves, 1 thinly sliced and 1 minced
1/2 teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary
1 pound ahi tuna steak (1 1/2 inches thick)
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves, chopped
1/4 teaspoon red-pepper flakes
3 to 4 kale leaves, thinly sliced (1 cup)
3/4 cup homemade or low-sodium store-bought chicken stock
2 cups canned cannellini beans, rinsed
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
1 1/2 teaspoons red-wine vinegar


  1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil and sliced garlic in a skillet over medium heat. When garlic begins to sizzle, remove and discard. Add rosemary to oil, and immediately pour into a heatproof bowl. Let cool slightly.
  2. Season tuna with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Rub half the rosemary oil over tuna. Let stand 15 minutes.
  3. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add tuna, and sear until dark golden brown, about 1 minute per side. Transfer to a plate, and cover loosely with parchment. Let rest.
  4. Heat remaining teaspoon oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add thyme, red-pepper flakes, and minced garlic, and cook, stirring, 1 minute.
  5. Add kale, and cook 2 minutes. Add stock, and simmer 5 minutes.
  6. Add beans and tomatoes, and simmer 2 minutes. Stir in vinegar and remaining salt and pepper.
  7. Thinly slice tuna. Drizzle rosemary oil over tuna and beans on serving plates.

I made this last night. Both my husband and I enjoyed it. I had everything but tuna streaks and thyme, so I substituted basil and tuna fish cakes. I used the tuna that comes in a pouch and mixed it with s&p seasoned panko bread crumbs to make little patties, kinda like crab cakes. Then I brushed them with the rosemary oil. They were very good and a cheap alternative to ahi tuna steak.
