Tuna, Roasted Pepper, and Tzatziki Sandwiches
- Total Time
You can buy freshly baked whole-wheat and whole-grain boules (basically, round loaves of bread) in many supermarkets and bakeries.
uncooked tuna20 oz, 4 (5-ounce) steaks
table salt½ tsp
black pepper¼ tsp, freshly ground
olive oil1 tsp
tzatziki sauce1 cup(s)
whole wheat bread8 slice(s), or whole-grain about 3 x 5 inches, toasted
uncooked red onion(s)1 small, thinly sliced
roasted red peppers (packed in water)7 ½ oz, drained
- Sprinkle both sides of the tuna with the salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the tuna and cook until browned on the outside but still pink in the center, 2 – 3 minutes on each side for medium-rare.
- Meanwhile, evenly spread the tzatziki on one side of each of the toasted bread slices. Place 5 basil leaves on each of 4 slices of bread; top each with one-fourth of the onion slices, one-fourth of the roasted red peppers, and a tuna steak. Place the remaining 4 bread slices on top of the tuna. Cut each sandwich in half with a serrated knife and serve at once. Yields 1 sandwich per serving.
