    Fresh Tuna Steaks With Lemon Created by PaulaG

    I really enjoyed this for dinner. I know that tuna is suppose to be rare but I can't eat it that way. Typically when it is cooked more medium it is usually dry. My tuna was more on the medium side and thanks to the sauce wasn't dry. It was very flavorful. Made for Aussie Swap.

    OK - hard to cook rare on the stove top. Will try again on the grill. The wine is a great addition with the lemon and parsley.

    I love fresh tuna and this was an excellent one to try! The wine was a great touch with the lemon and it was an excellent choice for dinner when having company at my house!
