Reviewed Grilled Tuna With Basil Pesto

Aug 20, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This was my first time to cook tuna. I had a beautiful tuna steak. I don't have an outdoor grill but I do have a Cuisinart Griddler Grill. I was lazy and I used pesto that I had in my refrigerator instead of making it fresh as per the recipe. I set the Grill to "sear" setting and cooked exactly 2 minutes on each side. It came out rare, but I"

This recipe, in concept, should have been relish. However, the sauce was a bit of a disaster. It never turn syrupy or brown and remained watery.

This is the most blandish meal I've ever made. Too little of everything. What a disappointment. If I might offer some suggestions to this lame recipe: too little of everything. The meat needs to be increased (the flavor of the meat is bland. Not enough potatoes. Not enough vegetables. Not enough cheese. The gravy had great hope. But considering...

This was an absolutely perfect recipe. The soup is outstanding and relatively easy to make. But the taste is remarkable. I would make one suggestion to others......when we bought our chicken sausage we bought pre-cooked sausage which was a bit difficult to remove from the casing and to incorporate with the chicken mixture. When I make this again,...

This was a perfect dish in every way. I cannot recommend it enough. And it's relatively easy to make.

Was this supposed to have shrimp too? I also think this recipe had too much rice. And it took much longer to cook the rice and required more liquid than what was provided for in the recipe. It tasted delicious though.

We couldn't find a 2" tart pan. Used a 11X1.5" but wouldn't hold all of the filling mixture. Also used an overly spicy chorizo which overpowered everything and conflicted with the pesto. Will try to make this again using a 2" tart pan and different chorizo because for the life of m can't understand why this recipe won the throwdown.
