Tuna Debut rained out

First I have to admit, I've never been much for seafood.  But seeing how most of it I had growing up was dry and overcooked ( my mom cooked ALL protiens till they were leather) I thought I'd give it another shake.  I had planned on cooking some yellowfin tuna steaks on the egg tonight, but a big rain and lightning storm killed that.  So instead I seared the steaks in a CI pan with salt and pepper and roasted some brussel sprouts int the oven.  They had a nice sear, about a 1/4" ring of "cooked", and the rest was rare.  My wife immediately turned up her nose and fixed a sandwich.  I tried it, and wow.  To me it tasted almost as good as beef steak!   I cant wait to try  it on the egg next time.  Why didn't y'all tell me it was this good ?

(Sorry no pics, I wasn't expecting much from it)

    Here are a few pics from my last yellowfin cook. I slow smoked @160 dome with apple wood. Then I made a dip with shiracha, mayo, celery, garlic, sweet relish and honey mustard. It was DA BOMB. imageimage
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    Thanks Travis, I'm going to add that to my list now.  I still cant get past oysters, but I'm going to try a lot more fish now.

    @travis: while that dip looks delicious part of me is cringing at the thought of fully cooking fresh tuna.
    I need to shed some established perceptions.
    Its on the list.
