Tuna is one of the more popular ways to serve up fish on the family dinner table, but come on. You can do better than the average, uninspired tuna-fish sandwich and tuna casserole, right? The Millmont Grille has a recipe that will expand your tuna horizons. Millmont serves fish specials every day, and General Manager Troy Berge says the garlic-citrus marinated tuna is “one of our favorites.”
Berge says the restaurant, located behind Barracks Road Shopping Center, tries to present each fish dish in a “new, flavor-forward manner.“ The wasabi aioli in this recipe adds a piquant taste to the already flavorfully marinated tuna.
