Mint pesto

mint pestoMint pesto is a fresh sauce with a distinctly balsamic taste that distinguishes this aromatic plant that is widely used especially in the preparation of desserts.

In this recipe we use it to prepare a delicious and fragrant savory sauce, excellent to accompany grilled fish or carpaccio but also roasted meat; simple and quick to prepare, it can be a pleasant alternative to season and flavor various main courses.

To make the mint pesto, it will be sufficient to blend (or crush in a mortar) some mint leaves together with pine nuts, extra virgin olive oil, salt e pepper until a creamy, spreadable consistency is achieved.


Heat well the griddle (or grill), where you are going to cook the tuna, properly drained from the marinade, for about 3 minutes per side; adjust according to the height of the fillet by adding or removing a few seconds per side.

Optimal cooking of this tuna steak will occur when the meat is still pinkish in the center.
Now remove the tuna fillet from the plate and, trying to make an oblique cut, cut it into slices about 1.5 to 2 cm high; arrange the slices on a serving plate and sprinkle them with mint pesto.

Specifications 304 vs 430 stainless steel.

The choice of steel on which we cook meat, vegetables, fish and foods in general is of paramount importance for the health of our bodies, which is why we at Planet Grill use stainless steel for our grills and cooking plates.

In barbecues (both gas and wood-fired) high temperatures are reached: this means that the chemical components from which the grill is made can release substances and metals that are absorbed by food, and thus digested, thestainless steel does not have these problems because to melt it must have a minimum temperature of 1450° so temperatures that are difficult if not impossible to achieve with a barbecue.

Cooking steels must be quality steels: be usable for cooking food, stable at high temperatures, and resistant to corrosion over time.

Planet Grill mainly uses 2 types of steel for barbecues and cooking grills: 304 stainless steel and 430 stainless steel.

Both304 steel and430 steel are among the steels that can be in contact with food, according to the Ministry of Health Decree of March 21, 1973.
