Poaching tuna steaks in white wine? help please?!


Question: Poaching tuna steaks in white wine!? help please!?
ok, it sounds like a dumb idea, but i had a fresh tuna steak in the fridge that needed using, since it had been opened and resealed since sunday i was afraid to eat it seared/raw so i decided to poach it in white wine as i thought it would be less tough than grilling it!.!. !.!. next thing you know i poured a lovely orange and flora muscat in a sauce pan and threw my tuna steak in and realised it was a bad idea and i wasted some good wine and ended up with tough tuna anyway!.!. so, is there any way i can salvage the simmering muscat and make it into a sauce for it!? or do i pour it down the sink and treat it as a loss and a learning experience and drown my tough but floral and orange tuna steak in another sauce!? if another sauce, what would you suggest!?

i made a lovely scallop "stew" by cooking in v-8 and sherry but i simmered the juice down and it thickened to a sauce, i obviously cant do that with white wine alone!.!. what can i add to it to make a thickened sauce!? thanks

well, the good news is i finished the quarter bottle muscat that was left so im happy anyway!.!. ;) lolWww@FoodAQ@Com


Answers:
lol I like that you finished the bottle hehe

If it were me, I'd let the liquid cool, and then make a sauce using a roux- If you don't know how to do this- soften a finely chopped shallot in about an ounce of butter, then stir in about an ounce of flour until well combined on a lowish heat!. Then bit by bit add your liquid, stirring it in all the time!. If the sauce goes lumpy just give it a good whisk!.
Season well with plenty of freshly ground black pepper and add a good dash of double cream!. Mmmm-mm!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Make a sauce for sautee chicken!.

4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, divided
1 tablespoon minced shallots
1/2 cup muscat (use the sauce)
1 tablespoon whipping cream
1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon

Melt 2 tablespoons butter in large skillet over medium-high heat!. Add chicken; sauté until cooked through, about 2 minutes per side!. Transfer to platter; tent with foil!. Melt remaining butter in same skillet over medium-high heat!. Add shallots; sauté, stirring occasionally, 2 minutes!. Add wine; bring to boil!. Add cream; bring to simmer!. Stir in tarragon!. Season with salt and pepper!. Spoon over chicken!.
