Pan-seared tuna with ginger; squash with onions and tomatoes
This is a one-pan meal. Cook onions and garlic in olive oil until translucent, and add green summer squash. Cook for a while on medium-high, stirring occasionally, until squash starts to brown. Meanwhile, pick oregano and green Remove squash and onions from the pan, saving the oil, and zebra tomatoes from the garden; wash and dice. Remove the squash from the pan, saving the oil for the fish, and toss with the tomatoes and oregano and some salt.
Then sliced peeled ginger to the pan to flavor the oil. Adding more oil if necessary, cook tuna steaks over high heat a few minutes to a side, so that the fish is just pink in the middle. Pair the dinner with a Pinot (either Noir or Gris).
