Do you want to make a quick and easy gourmet style meal? How about grilling some Ahi Tuna Steaks?
Things You'll Need
- Boneless tuna steaks 1-1/2 to 2 inches thick, (Ahi is best but or other Tunas will do)
- Vegetable oil, (or Margarine)
- Sea Salt
- Black Pepper
- Lemon Pepper
- Dill Weed (optional)
- Paprika (optional)
Combine equal amount of Salt, Pepper and Lemon Pepper with just a "pinch" of Paprika and Dill Weed for color and appearance
Mix your seasoning together in a bowl, (lifting and sifting with a folk).
Barely cover the Grill or the bottom of the Pan with your oil (cast iron works best and heats most evenly).
Heat the Grill/Pan to Medium Heat.
Rub the seasonings into the steaks very lightly and gently (be carful not to tear the tender flakes).
After the Grill/Pan is up to temperature, place your lightly seasoned Tuna Steak on the heated surface.
Heat until the edges turn white and flip once, (about 4 minutes). Then heat the second side for about 3 minutes.
There will be a VERY light golden brown color on the surface of the steaks and the sides will be completely white when the steaks are done.
Now Savor the Flavor!
