This incredibly quick and easy dish from New Orleans chef Donald Link's Down South cookbook features tuna steaks poached until rare in a bright, buttery sauce that's infused with tangy lime and kumquats, spicy jalapeños and fresh mint. Doubled or tripled, it would make an excellent dinner-party dish. Slideshow:  More Tuna Recipes
