Grilled Tuna Crostini


by: Sharon

Albacore tuna has a firm, even texture that couldn?t be simpler to grill. Its pale pink colour is lighter than the dark red flesh of yellowfin tuna, and the flavour is lighter, too, which makes it just right for this chopped seafood salad served on slices of grilled bread.
