Fresh albacore creates a tuna fish sandwich like no other.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/3 pounds skinless Pacific albacore, cut into 3/4 inch thick loin cuts
  • 2 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 6 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano, crushed
  • dash of cayenne
  • 2 French rolls, split lengthwise
  • 1/4 cup chopped basil
  • Sauteed Red Peppers1 red pepper, roasted, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch strips
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 medium onion, sliced into thin half-rings

Directions

  • Rinse albacore with cold water; pat dry with paper towels. Set aside.
  • Make vinaigrette by combining oil, lemon juice, pepper, salt, oregano and cayenne; mix well. Divide in half.
  • Marinate albacore in one-half of the vinaigrette for 30 minutes, turning once.
  • While fish is marinating make Sauteed Red Peppers (see recipe below).
  • Drain albacore reserving marinade. Place on greased grate, 4-5 inches from hot coals. Cook 5-6 minutes, turning once and basting frequently. Do not overcook! Albacore should be pink in center when removed from the heat.
  • Toast rolls lightly on grill. Brush toasted sides with remaining vinaigrette.
  • Make four open-faced sandwiches by topping with albacore, Sauteed Red Peppers and fresh basil. Serve immediately.
