  1. In a skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Sear tuna on one side for about five minutes. Flip and sear other side for two to three minutes, or until tuna is cooked to your desired degree of doneness. Remove from skillet and allow to rest.
  2. Return skillet to heat and add white wine. Scrape bottom of pan with spatula to remove any bits from browning the tuna. Reduce heat to medium and add shallot and garlic. Cook and stir until shallot is clear, approximately 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in blood orange juice. Boil until the liquid has reduced to half its original volume or until it thickens. Remove from heat.
  3. Slice the tuna across the grain. Fan the slices out onto a place and drizzle with blood orange sauce.

THIS WOULD HAVE GOT 5 STARS, BUT THE COOKING TIME IS WAY WAY OFF! THE TIME TO SEAR A ONE TO ONE AND 1/2 INCH STEAK IS ABOUT 1 MINUTE ON EACH SIDE. ANY LONGER AND YOU MIGHT AS WELL USE A CAN OF S...

Delicious! And smelled so good while making it. I agree with all the other comments that 5 minutes is way too long for searing the tuna. 1-2 minutes per side is more like it. The tuna got co...

This was a really good recipe. I was looking for something to eat with a good light crisp champagne and this was it. The tuna was wonderful, although I lightly salted and peppered the steaks the...

Pretty good! Simple. A few comments: seared for 1.5 min first side, 1 min second side, and it was almost too much. 1 tbsp of butter in the ingredients is not used in the directions. Needed ...

I served this dish for Valentine's day dinner. Searing time for each side was up to 2 minutes for a delicious rare center. However, the blood orange sauce was too tart for our taste and didn't ...

My ahi tuna steaks were almost an inch thick and I seared them about 4 minutes per side and they were cooked just right. I started the sauce in a separate pan, using a cup of fresh juice from C...

Agreed with other reviewers- a quick sear in a hot cast iron pan should be no longer than a minute or so per side for the fish. I subbed in mirin for the white wine and regular fresh squeezed o...
