Lemon Pepper Tuna

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.

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!
