    I've had this dish at many different restaurants. Almost all had done a great job at the preparation as its an easy meal to make. Garlic mashed potatoes really complete this dish.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Melt the butter in a bowl or plate large enough to hold the tuna steak Place tuna steak in bowl, coating both sides with butter Sprinkle half of cajun seasoning on each side of steak For an extra spicy treat, add black pepper.
    2. 2
      I recommend cooking this outdoors on your grill.
    3. 3
      Cooking indoors will generate excessive smoke.
    4. 4
      Heat your grill to the highest possible temperature Turn off burners (to avoid flame up) then immediately add steak Cook for 2 minutes on first side Flip and cook on other side for 1 minute.
    5. 5
      (The steak will be very pink inside - yum!) Remove and serve immediately as it will cool quickly.
    6. 6
      I recommend serving over garlic mashed potatoes with either wasabi mustard or wasabi mustard/mayo mix.

      This was amazing, soft as butter and delicious. I served it to some close friends and it was a hit!

      Found fresh (not previously frozen) steaks at Costco. Just used the butter and lemon/pepper seasoning, on Forman grill, for 2 minutes. (DH doubled the time, and added some spicier seasoning), OH -- YUM !! It was just lovely ! Served with roasted Roma tomatoes with seasoned bread crumbs, and garden fresh, baked zucchini slices. makes the trials and tribulations of maintaining a garden in a drought, worth-while !! Thanks for posting !!
