Spicy Tuna Kebabs with Fruit Salsa
This healthy entrée combines fresh fruit, vegetables and spicy tuna for colorful grilled kebabs.
8 bamboo or metal skewers
1 pound tuna fillets, cut into thick chunks
½ cup adobo or chipotle sauce
1-2 cups green bell pepper, cut into chunks
2 cups whole California strawberries, stems removed
1 medium red onion, cut into chunks
2 cups California strawberries, diced
1 cup jicama, peeled and diced
¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
Juice of one half lime
1 teaspoon olive oil (optional)
If using bamboo skewers, immerse in water for 20 to 30 minutes before grilling (this will keep skewers from burning).
Rub adobo sauce over fish and marinate in baking pan or platter. Marinate in refrigerator for at least 10 minutes or overnight.
Assemble kebabs on skewer by alternating tuna chunks with peppers, whole strawberries and onion; divide among 8 skewers.
In a medium bowl, combine diced strawberries, jicama, cilantro, lime juice and optional olive oil. Set aside.
Place kebabs on a broiling pan and broil on top oven rack for 5 to 8 minutes per side, until tuna is completely cooked. Serve with fruit salsa.
