This is very quick and easy but extremely tasty. I sometimes like to substitute the Dijon mustard with Coleman's English Mustard for a really HOT taste. Lemon thyme is also nice used in place of the chives.
- 4 tuna steaks, 3/4 inch thick
- 1⁄2 cup stock
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper, coarse ground
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard, country style
- 1 tablespoon oil
- 1 tablespoon chives, finely chopped
- Season both sides of tuna.

- Remove tuna from the pan.
- To same pan, add stock and lemon juice and heat the mixture to boiling point.
- Remove from heat.
- Add mustard and chives and stir.
- Pour sauce over tuna.

I tried it with 1 tsp fresh finely chopped green onion leaves and cod fillets. Excellent taste. Thanks for the recipe
Very tasty and simple to prepare. I sprinkled some onion powder in since I did not have chives. Will make this recipe again. Thanks!
I've tried this twice. The first was fabulous, the second time a little dry but I probably over-cooked them. Definitely a great way to do tuna. Thanks!
