If you ever wondered how to cook a tuna steak, look no further! If you've been terrified to eat tuna, ever, now is the time to try it. If you've smelled the canned tuna and gagged, don't worry… this is nothing like that stuff! I don't even really like seafood, and I am in love with this easy tuna steak recipe.
Easy Tuna Steak Recipe
Even if you've never cooked steak successfully before, you'll nail this easy tuna steak recipe – I promise! The key is to cook it for just a few minutes.
pepper or other seasonings
Drizzle olive oil over each steak, on both sides. We used chili olive oil from the Queen Creek Olive Mill in Arizona. Add sea salt and red pepper flakes or your seasoning of choice.
Heat up the cast iron skillet (or one that is NOT Teflon), being sure to add enough olive oil to fully coat the pan. The last thing you want is for this expensive ass steak to stick to the pan!
Once the pan is hot (but not smoking), add the tuna steak. I cooked mine one at a time, just so I could focus on them and make sure I didn't screw them up. If you cook them for about 2 minutes on each side, the tuna will be pink in the middle and ready to eat.
I don't eat pink meat, so I cooked mine for about 5 minutes on each side. However, you have to be really careful if you're cooking them that long. It's very tender and it will fall apart if you don't keep an eye on it.
This is the best tasting seafood I've ever had. I don't usually eat much fish, but this tuna tastes like a very light steak… and it totally melts in your mouth!
