This is what I like to call "Sonoma Goes to Italy." These flavors of Sonoma and California wine country are rich and colorful and they really wake up your taste buds. This dish really is a compliment to the Mediterranean with the salsa. You can serve this salsa alongside other fish, chicken, turkey, steak, or even veal. Also, don't overcook the tuna because it will get dry very quickly. This is a very sophisticated and simple dish that can be served for lunch or dinner for family and friends. This meal is better than what you would get at your local Italian restaurant it's that good.
