Testing out some new recipes recently and decided this one needed some sharing…
Pan Seared Lime Tuna
- 2 tuna steaks
- Zest and juice of one lime
- 2 teaspoons dried thyme leaves
- 1 teaspoon coarsely-ground pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- Extra-virgin olive oil
Rinse the tuna steaks and pat dry with paper towels. Grate the zest from the lime, keep the lime.
In a small bowl, combine lime zest, thyme, pepper and salt; stir to mix. Lightly rub both sides of the tuna steaks with olive oil. Rub the seasoning mix on the tuna steaks; coating them well.
Using a heavy bottomed sauté pan, warm the olive oil. Increase the heat to high and place the tuna in the pan. Sear for 1 minute, then turn over carefully, reducing the heat to medium. Sear the other side for 1 more minute until medium rare. Squeeze the lime juice over the tuna steaks right after you take them from the stove, then serve.
