    I like to take tuna steaks about 1 1/2-2 inches thick, marinate in soy sauce, ginger, little lemon/lime juice s/p for a couple of hours, roll in black and white sesame seeds. Get a cast iron pan hot like blackened fish, using a little peanut oil sear the tuna on the outside for a few minutes, slice thin and serve with wasabi.
    Marinade, Teriyaki

    1/2 cup soy sauce
    2 Tbs Worcestershire sauce
    2 Tbs brown sugar
    1 Tbs lemon juice
    1/4 tsp ginger
    1/2 tsp garlic powder

    1 Mix all ingredients together and pour over meat (works well with tuna, any fish, steak, chicken, pork). Refrigerate 8 hours or over night turning occasionally. Grill meat as usual. Sear tuna!

  • I like my tuna just seared with just a little salt and pepper. I usually just torch the outside with my kitchen torch, chill, then slice thinly. Wasabi, soy, sweet chili sauce for dipping.

    Tuna steak is best cooked hot and fast like a beef steak, a little EVOO and salt and pepper is all you really need. If you like your results you can experiment with different rubs, etc, on your next cook. :)
