Four 6-ounce tuna steaks
Season tuna with salt and pepper and refrigerate until ready to cook. Roughly chop the tomato. In a skillet heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and almonds and sauté until the garlic turns golden but not too brown.
Add the plum tomato, sun-dried tomato, roasted red pepper, and red pepper flakes. Cook until the tomato is soft. Let cool.
Place the tomato mixture in a blender and puree until smooth. Remove to a bowl and stir in the vinegar and parsley.
To cook the tuna, spray the fillets lightly with nonstick cooking spray. Heat a nonstick skillet or grill to high heat.
Cook for 4 to 5 minutes on each side depending on thickness and desired degree of doneness.
