Lunch at Lino's - Second Course

Lino and my husband share a small motorboat and like to go fishing on Saturday mornings. This weekend they were lucky enough to catch a small tuna. The most common fish found near the shore in the Adriatic locally are small, spiney types so a tuna is a special treat!
First, Lino cleaned the fish and then sliced it into steaks.

He sauteed whole cherry tomatoes in extra virgin olive oil with some chopped basil.

In another pan, he sautéed anchovies, minced onion and garlic with oregano in a bit of olive oil.

i can smell the aromas coming out of the pan - very lucky of you to have fresh fish available, large fresh fish is expensive in crete

It's good to have friends like Lino. What you call oregon, I think is what we call oregano. It all looks fantastic.
