Seared Tuna and Salsa

A light tasty meal that is ready in minutes. I prefer fresh tuna when I can get it but even flash frozen fish seems to work well with this recipe. Cooking with high heat (either on a grill or in a pan) is the key. From Cuisine at Home Weeknight Menus.

  1. For the salsa, gently combine the salsa ingredients in a bowl. Set aside and prepare the tuna.
  2. To promote browning, pat the tuna steaks dry and season with salt and pepper. Heat vegetable oil in large sauté pan over medium-high heat. It is hot enough when it begins to lightly smoke. Add the tuna steaks and sear for just a couple of minutes on each side, until medium rare.
  3. Serve with salsa spooned over the tuna.
