Grilled Tuna Steaks
Serves 4

4 small Tuna steaks (or 2 medium, or 1 large)
2 tsp. Salt
2 tsp. Ginger Root, finely chopped
1/2 tsp. White Pepper
4 Tbs. Cornstarch, divided
4 tsp. Green Chilies
1/4 cup Water
1 Tbs. Granulated Sugar
1/4 cup Peanut oil
1 Tbs. Garlic, minced
1 cup Chicken Broth
2 Green Onions, thinly sliced (include green tops)
Spinach or Leaf Lettuce for garnish

Pat tuna steaks dry with paper towels to remove excess moisture.

Mix salt, ginger, and white pepper together in a small bowl. Coat both sides of fish with mixture, and rub about one tablespoon of cornstarch on sides of steaks. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Mix green chilies with remaining tablespoons of cornstarch, water, and sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add peanut oil, minced garlic, and chicken broth, and blend well. Bring to a boil and stir constantly, until thickened a bit. Cool and reserve for basting while grilling tuna steaks.

To prepare green onions, cut them into thin, vertical, string-like slices and reserve for a garnish.

Prepare grill for moderate cooking. Brush grate of grill with oil to prevent sticking. Grill tuna steaks about 4 or 5 minutes on each side,making sure to baste frequently with prepared liquid. Grilling time will vary with thickness of steaks; estimate 10 minutes per inch of thickness.

Line a serving platter with spinach or lettuce leaves, and place fish on bed of greens, garnishing with green onion strings.
