the Ingredients

20151023095346 Row Seafood 6
  • 2 albacore tuna fillets, each about 225 grams and 2.5 centimeters thick
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground fennel seed
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  • 120 milliliters mayonnaise
  • 65 grams finely diced English cucumber
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh dill
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped black olives
  • 1 tablespoon capers, drained
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 baguette
  • Sliced tomatoes (optional)
  • Lettuce leaves (optional)


  • 01 Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat (180° to 230°C).
  • 02 Lightly brush both sides of the fillets with oil and season evenly with the fennel, salt, and pepper. Grill the fillets over direct medium heat, with the lid closed, until opaque throughout and firm to the touch, 8 to 10 minutes, turning once. Transfer the fillets to a cutting board and chop them into 6-millimeter pieces.
  • 03 In a medium bowl combine the topping ingredients. Add the tuna to the bowl and gently stir to combine.
  • 04 Cut the baguette on the bias into 12-millimeter slices. Lightly brush one side of the slices with oil and grill them, oiled side down, over direct medium heat, with the lid closed, until toasted, about 1 minute (grill one side only).
  • 05 Spoon the topping on the toasted side of the bread, with sliced tomatoes and lettuce, if desired. Serve at room temperature.
