Original recipe yields 4 servings
- 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.
- 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.
- 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 STARKIS..." See moreT AND CALL IT A DAY...THE SAUCE HOWEVER IS A KEEPER! "
"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 cold whi..." See morele making the sauce, unfortunately, but a quick trip to the microwave before pouring the sauce on fixed that. Squeezed a couple of blood oranges but not enough for 2 cups so I mixed it with regular orange juice. Again, turned out delicious!"
