There were some pretty looking tuna steaks at the fish counter, so we bought two. I know it doesn’t sound crazy adventurous – buying tuna instead of say, squid. But I’d never prepared tuna steaks before. When it comes to fish, I usually stick with salmon or tilapia. I absolutely love grouper and mahi mahi, but I’ve never prepared my own.
I seasoned the fish with plenty of pepper, salt, and dried herbs and cooked them in a skillet with a little bit of olive oil. Spritzed with fresh lemon juice and provided pesto (I used my Nut-Free Basil Pesto) for dipping.
- 2 tsp dried oregano
- 2 tsp dried rosemary
- 2 tsp kosher salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 2 tuna steaks
- 1-2 tbsp olive oil
- Combine herbs, salt and pepper. Rub onto both sides of the fish.
- Sear fish over medium heat in olive oil. Cook to desired done-ness.
