Ahi tuna, also known as yellowfin, is slightly more flavorful than the milder-tasting albacore. This recipe calls for cooking the tuna steaks briefly, which helps to prevent the fish from drying out.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tbs. green peppercorns
  • 1 Tbs. chopped fresh thyme
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 4 ahi tuna steaks, each 6 oz.
  • 2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbs. lemon zest

Directions:

In a mortar or a mini food processor, combine the green peppercorns, thyme and salt and grind with a pestle or process until blended. Rub both sides of the tuna with the mixture, covering the surfaces completely.

In a nonstick sauté pan over medium-high heat, warm the olive oil until almost smoking. Arrange the tuna in the pan and sear, turning once, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a cutting board and cut into 1-inch strips. Arrange the slices on a warmed platter, sprinkle with the lemon zest and serve immediately.
Serves 4.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast, Beautiful, Simple, & Delicious This was easy to make, truly! It was my first searing attempt and it was a success! I put the peppercorns in a pepper grinder so it was faster than using a mortar & pestle. Really tasty and great with a cucumber salad.
