Mango-Jerk Tuna with Couscous


Pureed in a marinade, mango gives the fish a lush, sweet flavor. The jerk sauce is available at specialty food stores.

  1. 1 small mango, peeled and coarsely chopped
  2. 1 small shallot, quartered
  3. 2 tablespoons prepared jerk sauce
  4. 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  5. 1 teaspoon honey
  6. Four 1/3 -inch-thick 7-ounce slices of sushi-quality tuna
  7. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  8. Mango Couscous
  1. In a food processor, combine the mango, shallot, jerk sauce, lime juice and honey. Process until smooth and transfer to a medium bowl. Add the tuna and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 3 hours.
  2. Preheat the grill or broiler. Remove the tuna from the marinade, season with salt and pepper and grill on a lightly oiled rack or broiler pan for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes per side, for very rare, or slightly longer for medium. Serve with the Mango Couscous.
