Cooking time

30 minutes




950 /serving

This tapenade will be your eureka moment! You’ll make it by blistering grapes under the broiler with thyme and rosemary until they’re practically bursting out of their skins. Once they’re sweet, hot and punchy, add olives and parsley for flavour-popping results. It’s a tantalizing topper for broiled tuna steaks, gorgeously pink inside after just a few minutes on broil. Round out this gourmet meal with grains and greens: freekeh cooked with leeks along with a baby leaf salad featuring thinly sliced endive for an elegant ensemble.

Cook the freekeh
Peel, halve and mince the shallot. In a medium pot, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Sauté the leeks and all but 1 tsp of the shallot (double for 4 portions), 2 to 3 min., until softened. Add the freekeh and a big pinch of salt; fill the pot with water ⅔ of the way and bring to a boil. Cook, 24 to 26 min., until tender. Drain and return to the pot. Toss with a drizzle of oil and set aside in a warm spot.

Mise en place
Place the oven rack in the top position and preheat the oven to broil. Zest and juice the lemon. Pit and chop the olives. Pick the grapes off the stems. Remove the root end of the endive; thinly slice lengthwise. Pick the thyme and rosemary leaves off the stems; finely chop the leaves together. Roughly chop the parsley leaves and stems.

Broil the grapes
On a lightly oiled foil-lined sheet pan, toss the grapes with the thyme and rosemary, lemon zest, a generous drizzle of olive oil and S&P. Broil, 2 to 4 min., until the grapes begin to burst (watch the grapes closely as they can burn easily). Remove from the oven.

Broil the tuna
Pat the tuna* dry with paper towel; toss with a drizzle of oil, ½ the spices and S&P. Add to the pan of grapes and broil, 1 to 2 min. per side for medium-rare, or until cooked as desired. Transfer the tuna to a cutting board and thinly slice against the grain. Transfer the grapes and any liquid to a medium bowl.
