Moroccan tuna with herb salsa

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 \N Tuna steak; (5-oz)
½ teaspoon Extra-virgin olive oil
1 small Lemon; peeled seeded pith removed and chopped
1 small Lime; peeled seeded pith removed and chopped
1 tablespoon Chopped green onions
1 tablespoon Chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon Chopped fresh parsley
3 tablespoons Unsweetened orange juice
⅛ teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Extra-virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons Sugar

Set the oven to broil. Lightly coat the tuna steak with the olive oil and broil for about 3 to 5 minutes on each side, until the flesh is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.

Combine the remaining ingredients, pour the salsa over the tuna steak, and serve.

The extra salsa may be stored for 2 to 3 days, covered, in the refrigerator. It tastes great on broiled or baked chicken, too!
