Pomegranate Marinated Tuna Medallions

I jotted down a version of this recipe years and years ago.  It has changed so much since then but has always been a crowd-pleaser and a favorite in our home.  It is really good!

What makes these tuna medallions stand out is the addition of a pomegranate vinegar.  Pomegranate vinegar is a ruby-red vinegar with a perfect balance of fruity sweetness and crisp acidity.  It balances out the olive oil and seasonings while adding a subtle sweetness.

Pomegranates also are a nutritional powerhouse!  Providing vitamins C and B5 and potassium, pomegranate juice has been shown to prevent bad cholesterol (LDL) from oxidizing, which helps keep heart disease at bay.  (source: eHow Health)


1 lb wild caught tuna medallions 
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp pomegranate vinegar
1 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp seafood seasoning (such as Old Bay)
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper


Combine all ingredients in a small sized bowl.  Whisk together and in a ziploc bag pour marinade over tuna medallions.  Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.  
Grill tuna for 5 minutes on each side on medium high heat.  Enjoy!
