Tuna and Garlic Sandwiches
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Not just another tuna salad sandwich when made with freshly seared tuna and your own homemade bread.
1-2 pieces fresh tuna, about 1 to 1/2 inches thick
Rub each tuna piece with a few drizzles of olive oil and then pat the minced garlic and chives so that it sticks to the surface. Sprinkle with pepper. Heat a nice heavy bottomed skillet or saute pan for about 30 seconds, and then drizzle in a bit of oil. When pan is nice and hot (but not smoking hot), add the tuna. Cook 1-2 minutes on each side. Remove to plate and allow to cool. To assemble the sandwiches, break up the tuna and sprinkle with a bit of sea salt. Stir in the celery, diced dried fruits of choice and just enough mayonnaise to hold it together. Spread a bit more mayo over each bread slice and then assemble using fresh greens as desired.
