Grilled Tuna with Lemon Scallions

6 scallions, thinly sliced diagonally

1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro

1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil

1 teaspoon grated lemon zest

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon sugar

2 pounds tuna steaks (1-inch-thick)

3 tablespoons vegetable oil

Stir together scallions, cilantro, olive oil, lemon zest and juice, sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Rub tuna all over with vegetable oil, then sprinkle tuna with 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper total.

Heat 12-inch grill pan over medium-high heat until hot, then sear tuna, turning once, 5 to 6 minutes for medium-rare.

Slice tuna and serve with scallion sauce.
