Recipes from the Best of the Best: Lidia Bastianich's Grilled Tuna

Lidia Bastianich's recipe for grilled yellowfin tuna with beet salad and Humboldt Fog, adapted by the James Beard Foundation

But for the New American standard of tuna with beet salad, JBF Award winner Lidia Bastianich has added a touch that invites renewed appreciation. She coats the tuna in panko and Grana Padano cheese, which darkens to a umami-rich crust when the fish is seared on a piping hot grill. Get the recipe here.
