Yield: 12 servings
|12.00 slice||french baguette -; (1 slices)|
|1 \N||drizzle of olive oil|
|1.00 \N||tuna steak -; (8 oz)|
|1 \N||salt; to taste|
|1 \N||freshly-ground black pepper; to taste|
|½ cup||kalamata olives - (abt 20); pitted|
|½ \N||anchovy fillet|
|½ teaspoon||chopped garlic|
|2.00 tablespoon||extra-virgin olive oil|

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl, toss the bread slices with olive oil, coating each side completely. Season the bread with salt and pepper. Place the bread on a baking sheet and bake until crispy and slightly golden-brown, about 6 to 8 minutes. Remove the croutons from the oven and place on a large plate. Season the tuna steak with olive oil, salt and pepper. Place the tuna on a hot grill and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes on each side for medium-rare.
Combine all of the remaining ingredients in a food processor and puree for 15 seconds or until the mixture is smooth. Slice the tuna into 12 equal slices and place one slice on top of each crouton. Dab a spoonful of the tapenade on top of each tuna slice. Garnish with chopped chives. This recipe yields 1 dozen crostinis.
