Craving a delicious, perfectly seared tuna steak? You can always head to your favourite restaurant, but why not try to re-create your very own seared tuna at home as a treat for yourself, your friends, and your loved ones?
Tuna is one of the most popular fish in the world and for good reason too. It’s tasty, affordable, healthy, and easy to cook. Most people love it for its fresh and “clean” non-fishy flavour, and for its rich, fatty, and silky texture.
It’s quick to cook and easy to plate, and is incredibly healthy, with high levels of Omega-3 fatty acids and B vitamins. Eating more tuna could reduce your cholesterol levels and bring balance back to your blood vessels. Tuna is also high in manganese, zinc, vitamin C, and selenium – antioxidants that can boost your immune system.
Another great thing about tuna is that you can find it almost anywhere – at your neighborhood supermarket, wet seafood markets, or at frozen food suppliers. Here in Bali, you can order the island’s freshest raw and frozen tuna at Puri Pangan – the best grocery supplier online in Bali – and have it delivered straight to your home, business or restaurant.
Tuna can be both casual and classy, simple and elegant, or even fine and sophisticated. It all depends on what you’re in the mood for. It’s the perfect choice for those with a busy schedule whether you’re cooking for yourself, to surprise a loved one on their birthday, or even for your anniversary.
Ready to get cooking? Here’s a quick and easy recipe for Seared Tuna Steaks that will only take you 6 minutes.
Thaw your tuna steaks. Remove them from the vacuum-sealed plastic and leave them on a plate for at least 24-hours before you start cooking. Be sure to cover your tuna with plastic while they are thawing.
Once fully thawed, marinate your tuna steaks in a mixture of soy sauce, oil, salt, and pepper. Add some cayenne pepper if you like your tuna spicy. Marinate for at least 10 minutes or even overnight.
Next, heat up your cooking pan or iron skillet. We’d recommend using a non-stick pan as fish tends to stick to the surface while cooking. Otherwise, you can try seasoning your cast iron pan to prevent your tuna steaks from sticking.
Make sure your pan is as hot as possible before you start cooking.
Place the tuna steaks on the pan and sear for about 2 minutes on each side. Remove them immediately after and place on a plate. Slice and add some green onions and toasted sesame seeds and serve.
Tuna is best served seared on the outside and raw on the inside. The searing process will produce a crispy, salty and savory outside while the inside will remain supple, soft, and tender – a delicious blend of flavours and textures.
