Rosemary Tuna Kabobs

Rosemary Tuna Kabobs

Ingredients

3/4 pound fresh or frozen tuna steaks, 1 inch thick
1 teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tablespoon cooking oil
1 tablespoon snipped fresh rosemary or 1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
8 to 10 whole tiny new potatoes (about 3/4 pound)
4 baby pattypan squash, halved lengthwise, or 1 medium zucchini, halved lengthwise and cut into 1-inch pieces
Nonstick spray coating
4 cherry tomatoes
Hot cooked rice (optional)

Directions:

1. Thaw tuna, if frozen. Rinse tuna; pat dry. Cut into 1-inch pieces. Place tuna in a plastic bag set in a shallow dish. For the marinade, in a small bowl stir together the lemon peel, lemon juice, cooking oil, rosemary, garlic, salt, and pepper. Pour over tuna. Close bag. Marinate in refrigerator for 2 hours, turning bag occasionally.
2. Meanwhile, scrub potatoes; cut any large potatoes in half. In a medium saucepan cook potatoes in a small amount of boiling water for 15 to 20 minutes or just until tender; drain. Rinse with cold water. Set aside.
3. Drain tuna, reserving marinade. On 4 long metal skewers, alternately thread the tuna, potatoes, and squash or zucchini, leaving about 1/4-inch space between pieces. Spray the unheated rack of a broiler pan with nonstick coating. Place kabobs on rack. Brush with marinade. Broil 4 inches from heat for 5 minutes. Turn kabobs; brush with some of the marinade. Discard remaining marinade. Broil kabobs for 3 to 4 minutes more or until tuna flakes easily when tested with a fork and squash is tender. To serve, place a tomato on the end of each kabob. If desired, serve with rice. Makes 4 servings.
