Grilled Mesquite Tuna, Pasta Olio and Italian Tomato Salad

Grilled Mesquite Tuna

cooking spray
1 packet mesquite marinade (about 1 oz)
1/4 cup Italian salad dressing
1/4 cup red wine
1 tablespoon green pepper sauce
1 1/2 lb tuna steaks (thawed, if needed)
6 ounces pre-sliced portabella mushrooms (rinsed)


1. Coat grill rack with cooking spray, then preheat grill. Whisk in medium bowl, dry marinade mix, dressing, wine, and pepper sauce until blended. Reserve 1/4 cup for basting.
2. Cut tuna into 4 servings and place in marinade. Add mushrooms; let marinate 10 minutes, turning occasionally, to evenly coat.
3. Place tuna and mushrooms on grill; wash hands and discard marinade that has come in contact with raw fish. Close lid or cover with foil; grill 8–10 minutes, turning occasionally and basting often with reserved marinade, or until internal temperature reaches 145°F. Grills vary widely; use a meat thermometer to accurately ensure doneness. Serve.
