I loved this recipe. It is company and special occasion worthy. I was thinking to give the finished dish a little more color, sprinkle it with paprika. Other than that, no changes are needed.

I love tuna and am always looking for new ways to prepare this healthy fish. The sauce is what makes this dish! It's absolutely delicious! As the fish was cooking covered in the wine, I added some broccolini to steam alongside it. Served this with a side dish of White Bean Pancetta Salad White Bean Pancetta Salad UPDATE: Rather than sauteeing the steaks in olive oil then adding the wine, I poached the steaks in the wine and added a thinly sliced bulb of fennel for a side dish. This method really brought out the taste of the bay leaves and wine in the fish.

Thank you. It was the first time I cooked Tuna steaks. They came out very good. Loved the taste of the onions and tuna. I told my sister about it so I had to sent her a copy.

Tuna and onions...what a great combination. Overall my DH and I really enjoyed this recipe. I had no problem making the onion sauce, but needed to add a little more vinegar and sugar to get that sweet/sour taste...about 2 more Tbsp. vinegar and another tsp. sugar. The method of cooking the tuna was pretty unconventional for me, and it certainly did take longer than the 7 minutes to get the fish to medium rare...more like 12 minutes. Perhaps my steaks were extra thick. They did continue to cook after removing from the skillet, so perhaps I should have taken them out a minute or two sooner. This is a very good recipe and I'll experiment in the future with other fish.
