Fresh Tuna Steaks
Butter or Margarine
Cut tuna steaks to 3/4" to 1" thickness.
Soften 1/2 stick of butter or margarine.
Pre-heat a heavy cast iron frying pan.
I prefer to place the pan on an outdoor charcoal grill.
It gets hotter and the blackening process creates a little smoke.
Brush softened butter on each side of the tuna.
Sprinkle on McCormick Cajun Seasoning or pre-mixed blackened fish seasoning.
Cook over very high heat for about 2 minutes per side.
Best when cooked to medium doneness.
I found this easy recipe to be superior to grilling over direct heat which tends to dry out the fish.
The butter and seasonings quickly harden to a crisp coating sealing in moisture.
Great on a soft kaiser roll with lettuce and tomato.
