Shop for this week's Dinner in Minutes

The shopping list and preparation are simple for this 30-minute Seared Tuna With Sweet-Sour Onions. It comes from "Seafood Alla Siciliana," a giftable new cookbook that celebrates modern Sicilian dishes.

Toni Lydecker's new title. (Lake Isle Press)

If you're so inclined, pick up a California pinot noir such as the Alma Rosa "La Encantada Vineyard" 2007.

1 large red onion

One 1 1/4-pound piece tuna

5 tablespoons red wine vinegar

Extra-virgin olive oil

8 to 10 mint leaves, for garnish

Curious recipe. I've had this before and the sweet/sour onions is a nice touch. I occasionally make a vegetarian variant of this (from "Red, White, and Greens"?) that uses winter squash instead of tuna. You slice a winter squash (I like acorn or buttercup due to the shape of the resulting slices) from top to bottom about 1/2 inch thick (I leave the skin on so it holds it's shape when cooking), coat with oil, and then grill on both sides until cooked.

The onions are cooked similarly and it's served the same way - good hot or at room temp.
