Blackened Tuna

Recently had some blackened mahi when I was in Florida and wanted to give some tuna the blackened treatment ( mainly because it was on sale :) ).  Seasoned it with lime juice and Smokin' Guns Hot BBQ rub.  I let the egg get up to 500 and threw it on.  Seared it on all sides till it was medium rare.  I remembered to take pictures of my cook this time so I could actually post something.  It turned out really well and I plan on doing it again.  I had some Bone Suckin' Sauce on the side but it was unnecessary.

I had coucous & spinach with it but turned out pretty bland.  Maybe I should do it on the Egg next time :)

    That looks great, not sure how you did your spinach but try to saute it with garlic and EVOO till just softened do not over cook!

  • Seared tuna is pretty damn tasty! I like mine more on the rare side. IMO, anything over medium rare and you might as well not bother.
    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    Thanks for the tip!  I thought I had put a lot of seasoning in the couscous so that it would be balanced but it got drowned out by the spinach

    I love, love, love blacked fish off of the BGE. Can't cook it in the house because of all the smoke. I am a traditionalist when it comes to blackened fish. I stay as close to the way that Paul Prudomme did it originally. It was so good like that it became famous and now it's served in almost every restaurant in the country. I usually serve it with fettuccine Alfredo with some pesto mix in, grilled asparagus with Hollandaise sauce and garlic bread. Mmmm

    Looks great.  Did you buy it fresh and did you cut the fillets or already cut.  That is a nice cut of fish!

    When i can find it here it is vaccum packed in small steak servings -- cost about four bucks a pound -- zero waste -- not a bad price - and healthy.  A restaurant near here serves it on top of a salad, and it is very good...
  • I got the tuna medallions at Harris Teeter already cut sitting in the case.  Not quite $4/lb though :)
