Pesce al cartoccio (Wrapped Grilled Fish)


  • Fresh tuna, one slice per person about 1" thick
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 2 large onions, sliced thin
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • Combine the vinegar, salt, pepper, mint leaves and oregano in a non-reactive pan.
  • Marinate the tuna slices in the liquid for 15 minutes.
  • Prepare a large piece of aluminium foil for each slice of fish, by brushing the foil with oil and lining it with sliced onions.
  • Drain the fish and place each slice on a piece of aluminium foil.
  • Cover with another layer of onions.
  • Tightly seal the foil around each slice of fish and cook on the grill for 10-15 minutes per side, or in a 350-degree oven for 15 minutes.
