If you get them on sale, tuna steaks are a good bargain, as well as containing lots of omega-3 fatty acids. The key is not to overcook them and dry them out. It’s fine for them to be medium or even medium-rare. Soaking in a simple marinade also helps to keep them moist and flavorful.
2 tablespoons (30 ml) olive oil
2 tablespoons (30 ml) lemon juice
6 ounces (170 g) tuna steaks
1/2 teaspoon (1 g) freshly ground black pepper
1. Combine the olive oil and lemon juice. Marinate the steaks in the mixture for at least 30 minutes, turning occasionally.
2. Heat a skillet over high heat. Add the steaks and cook 2 minutes.
3. Sprinkle with pepper, turn over, and cook 2 minutes longer.
