In a mixing bowl, stir together 4 tablespoons olive oil, vinegar, tomatoes, mint, crushed peppers, and oregano flowers. When the tuna is cool, pour the liquid mixture over the fish and set it aside. In a 6 to 8-inch saute pan, heat 3 tablespoons olive oil until smoking. In a mixing bowl, stir together the eggs, scallions, and pecorino. Pour into the smoking pan and cook until the omelet is set.
