....is a Hot Niçoise Salad Date
A Meal Made for Two
1/4 lb Fresh Green Beans
1/2 Cup Cherry Tomatoes
1/4 Cup Black Olives
1 Yellow Bell Pepper
2 Tuna Steaks
Preheat the oven to 400 and when it gets up to temp or just before put the bell pepper whole on a the baking pan (same one we'll use later) drizzle with olive oil. Leave it in for 10-15 min. While you're doing the rest of the prep.
Halve the tomatoes. Toss the asparagus, tomatoes, olives and about 4 Tbsp of olive oil. Tear the basil in halves or thirds. And place it all in your baking pan.
Ok back to the bell pepper. (I'm kinda make this up as I go because I'm trying to simplify it from the recipe.) So it should have softened some, cut it in half and take out the seeds (careful not to burn yourself!). Cut each half it into strip of 6ths or 8ths. And toss it all in the baking pan.
Take the Ahi Tuna Steaks and rub them (or drizzle if you don't want to touch them) with olive oil and then salt and pepper both side. Lay it amongst the veggies.
Crack the eggs into your brand spankin' new ramekins. Drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper. Put them in the baking tray too. This is a one pan, two ramekin type meal. Save on dishes.
Put everything the oven for 13 minutes or until the eggs are set and the tuna is cooked thru (it will flake) but is still moist.
Pull the pan out and squeeze lemon over everything and serve.
