    1. 1
      Rinse the tuna steaks and pat dry with paper towels.
    2. 2
      In a small bowl, combine cumin, paprika, tumeric, anise, ginger, cinnamon, pepper flakes, salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Lightly rub both sides of the tuna steaks with 1 tbsp olive oil. Rub the seasoning mix on both sides of tuna steaks; coating them well.
    3. 3
      Using a heavy bottomed saute pan or a cast-iron pan, warm the remaining olive oil. Increase the heat to high and place the tuna in the pan. Sear for 1 minute, then turn over carefully, reducing the heat to medium. Sear the other side for 1 more minute until medium rare. DO NOT OVERCOOK!
    4. 4
      Pour the melted butter over the tuna steaks and sprinkle with the coriander.
    5. 5
      (Also can do cook these on the grill -- just cook a few minutes on each side.).
    6. 6
      Serve immediately.

      Delicious! My grocer didn't have tuna so I substituted halibut, which I love anyway. We grilled ours! Thanks, *Parsley*! Made for the Unrulies Under the Influence, ZWT6.

      This is fantastic! We loved it and ate every bit of it. I will make it again. Next time I will try making it on the grill, though it was just perfect out of the pan. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT6 Challenge.

      Pretty tasty. I had to cook my tuna steaks for quite a bit longer than specified. I served this with Tunisian Beet Salad #136158 and the overall effect was a bit too spicy, but absolutely delicious. I loved the flavors of this and the ease with which it came together!
