  1. Season the tuna steaks with salt and cayenne pepper.
  2. Melt the butter with the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the peppercorns in the mixture until they soften and pop, about 5 minutes. Gently place the seasoned tuna in the skillet and cook to desired doneness, 1 1/2 minutes per side for rare.

Excellent!! Can't screw this one up. I'm a total beginner and this was my first time handling tuna steak. My BF and I absolutely loved it. Followed directions exactly except I just sprinkled a l...

This was delicious. My husband loved it!!! We had it just Monday and we are having company tomorrow and he has requested we have it again. The only changes I made is I used just regular pepper...
