Ingredients

2 ears corn
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil + extra for grilling fish
4 garlic cloves, sliced
6 medium Yukon gold potatoes, each sliced into 6 wedges
-- Leaves stripped from 1 large rosemary sprig
-- Kosher salt, to taste
-- Freshly ground pepper, to taste

12 fresh basil leaves, torn
4 six-ounce tombo tuna steaks

Heat 1/4 cup olive oil in small skillet over medium heat; add garlic and cook until light golden, stirring occasionally. Do not let garlic get dark brown or the oil will take on a burned taste.

Strain the oil and discard garlic. Toss the potato wedges with the oil, rosemary and salt and pepper to taste.

Spread the potatoes on a baking sheet and roast 30-40 minutes, turning once after 15-20 minutes. Potatoes should be crisp-brown on all sides. After they are done, turn off the heat and leave in the oven.

While the potatoes are cooking, grill the corn for 20 to 25 minutes, turning frequently. Set aside to cool.
