Tuna Steak in hot and spicy Marinade

By Ralph Kratzer

SummerHot weather requires slight diet that nonetheless supplies the body with all the necessary nutrients.

The important thing in my little series of recipes called “summer kitchen” is that your time in the kitchen is limited to a minimum and the dishes are light and easy to digest.

Enjoy the summer and happy cooking!
