by Jana Harvey on April 13, 2011

2 heirloom tomatoes, thickly sliced into 5 slices each
6 ounces ahi tuna
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
1 Tbs. red wine vinegar
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
8 green olives, pitted and chopped
1 tsp. salt

Arrange tomatoes on a serving platter. Heat a cast-iron grill over high heat until very hot. Quickly sear tuna on each side for 1 minute per side. Remove from heat. Mix the garlic, olive oil, vinegar, red pepper flakes, and olives in a bowl and set aside. Thinly slice tuna. Add to bowl with olive oil mixture and toss until well coated. Spoon over tomatoes, sprinkle lightly with salt, and serve.
