Rosemary Seared Tuna

Rosemary Seared Tuna

Introduction

I was afraid of cooking fish for a long long time. I took a deep breath one night and jumped in feet first. It took a couple of attempts and a little tweaking, but this is one of my favorite ways to prepare Tuna Steak!

NOTE - make sure you use FRESH TUNA

Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    1 clove crushed fresh garlic
    2 tsp Rosemary, dried
    1 tbsp Lemon Juice
    1/2 pount (or 8 oz) Yellowfin (Ahi) Tuna

Directions

Place oil and crushed garlic in skillet.
Heat pan until hot (medium-high to high heat)
While the pan is heating, sprinkle the lemon and rosemary on the tuna.

Once pan is hot, place tuna in skillet and count slowly to 30
Flip
Count slowly to thirty again

Run the edge of the tuna in the bottom of the pan to remove the pink. (You can omit this step if you don't mind the edges).

The tuna should be dark red and maybe slightly warm in the middle. I actually like mine dark red and cold. To avoid this count to 45 seconds instead of 30.

I also enjoy a little thyme in addition to the rosemary!

Makes one 1/2 pound serving of tuna
or
Two 1/4 pound servings of tuna

Number of Servings: 2
