Cooking Notes

Doug

Not sure I'll ever understand how recipe writers reduce sauces and caramelize onions so quickly. Anyway, this is a wonderful recipe. Highly recommend!

I would cut the wine sauce ingredients in half next time. Four ounces of sauce was plenty. More for the table! Otherwise, excellent.

White Pinot Noir?

Sam Bienstock

I used a dry Pinot Noir (white) instead of the red (it was what I had on hand at the time) and it was fantastic!

Debra

Delicious - used veggie broth instead of chicken. Took 20 min to reduce

Compared this with other red wine reduction sauces because it takes much much longer than 10 minutes to reduce 3 cups of liquid to one cup. Use more (double) the shallots and 1/2 cup broth instead of 2 1/2 cups. Add a rosemary sprig for additional flavor if needed.

We had one large steak for the two of us and adjusted the quantities of the ingredients accordingly.
We served mashed potatoes and wilted spinach as sides and we agreed it was a delicious meal.
I used a cast iron grill skillet and did cook the tuna to medium rare instead of rare.
We will never use any other tuna recipe.

They can't. End of story. Real life and the recipe, rarely go together.

To make step one easier:Add the toasted coriander and fennel seeds to a mortar, grind with a pestle. Add the coarsely ground pepper. Press the garlic through a press into the mix. Add the olive oil and mix with the pestle. Paint the tuna with the mixture with a pastry brush.

This recipe was delicious! I used more sauce, and larger tuna portions ( 1 1/2 lb for 6 seemed very light!). I added pink and black peppercorns, sesame seeds and poppy seeds to approximate an “everything” spice. Yum!

Rachel

Tasted great! Replaced the fennel with tarragon.

No fennel seedUse coriander powderRosemary sprig in wine reduction

For all the recipes that call for reducing a large volume of broth, instead use the amount of bouillon for the required stock, but much less water.

Margaret

Delicious —used white vermouth

This is a huge favorite for my husband and me. I make it often. Great combinations of flavors, and it’s quick! I made the wine sauce once and didn’t feel like we needed it, so I always make it with the spices and quick sautéing. I mix up the coriander, fennel and garlic for two rounds and keep it in the freezer. Sooooooo good!

Liz from Seattle

recipie was simple and reasonable for weeknight. the seasoning was good. but the sauce was too thin and watery. I'll skip the sauce next time. key is to use quality fish.

Arleen T

Truly exceptional. Used homemade veggie stock as well and was patient on the reduction. Also strained the sauce for fun. Served with mash potatoes and green beans. It was a farmers market meal!

Howard

The flavors were good but the sauce disappointing: much too watery. I might suggest reducing further, straining out the shallots, and whisking in additional butter to emulsify the sauce.

derf

Waaaayyy too much broth. Took too long to reduce and never got to where I wanted it.

Stan M.

To make step one easier:Add the toasted coriander and fennel seeds to a mortar, grind with a pestle. Add the coarsely ground pepper. Press the garlic through a press into the mix. Add the olive oil and mix with the pestle. Paint the tuna with the mixture with a pastry brush.

Lynn

The sauce was thin and bland, even though fully reduced. I think too much chicken broth. Did nothing for the tuna.

SusanCH

Delicious & a hit! I took the advice of others and used much less chicken stock than called for. 1/2 c is plenty.

CGS

Followed others' advice re sauce and did not have enough for my tuna-hater spouse. Even he gave this recipe high marks so will repeat.

KSweet

The sauce did take longer to reduce and was still runny, but it was tasty with the fish (and gluten free). Tried mashed parsnips for husband’s benefit, but they were not a hit.
