Whisk together the vinaigrette, lemon zest, garlic, and oregano in a medium bowl. Arrange the tuna steaks in a shallow baking dish and pour 1/2 cup of the mixture over them. Turn the tuna to coat, then cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Serve the tomato salsa over or alongside the tuna.
Recommended wine: Merlot, Pinot Noir, Rose Wine
Merlot, Pinot Noir, and rosé Wine are great choices for Tuna. Though fish is often paired with white wine, 'meatier' fish like tuna can absolutely go with red wine. A Rosé will also pair nicely, particularly if your tunan is prepared with ingredients better suited to a white wine. One wine you could try is Peju Province Merlot. It has 4.5 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 38 dollars.
Peju Province MerlotDeep ruby in color, the 2016 Merlot offers fragrant, layered aromas of juicy pomegranate, baking spice, and a hint of cedar. Lush fruits of cherry and blackberry envelop the palate. Soft hints of toasted almond and vanilla culminate with an elegant finish. Delicious now, this Merlot will continue to mature for the next 6-8 years.Blend: 95% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Petit Sirah
