Sear Grilled Tuna Steaks - perfect every time
Fresh Tuna steaks aren't cheap but they're worth every penny when you sear them over very high heat, very quickly.
Follow the high-heat method below and you'll be blessed with perfect Sushi grade grilled tuna steaks every time.
Seared to perfection, these tuna steaks match perfectly with the Asian Hotpocket grilled vegetable side dish.
Serves: 4 (1 Tuna steak per person)
Prep time: 5 minutes
Direct Heat: 700F (or as hot as your grill will go)
Drizzle sesame oil over both sides of the tuna steaks and lightly rub over the flesh.
Sprinkle crushed black peppercorns over both sides of the tuna.
When the grill is at temperature, lift the lid and place the steaks on the grill at 30 degree angle to the grates.
Close the lid and with a watch time the cooking for 1 minute and 10 seconds.
Close the lid and time for 1 minute only this time.
These times are specific for grills that can attain 700F. If your cooking less than that you'll need to add a few seconds on to the time.
After the minute is up, lift the lid and remove the tuna steak from the grill.
If done properly you should only see seared penetration approximately 1/4" to 3/16" - the rest of the flesh should be perfect sushi grade.
The only way to go!
