  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.

This was very easy and tasty, however the entire house filled with smoke and I literally had to open all the windows and have my husband take our baby outside. Now I'm no cook, but I thought this was odd because I followed the directions exactly as they were written. Next time I will cook at a lower heat and forget about trying to pop the peppercorns, because this was when the oil began to burn and fill the house with smoke (and they never popped anyway).

Absolutely wonderful! And my husband raved about it as well. I did have to cook the peppercorns a bit longer as mentioned in another review, but it was worth it. I'll make it again for company.

This is very good but there is too much salt in the recipe. I made this for 4 and the recipe called for 2 tsp kosher salt. I only used 1 tsp and it was still salty. But other than that, everyone loved it. Will definitely make again. Just with less salt. I also used yellow tail tuna steaks.
