Diva Tasting: Seared Ahi Tuna

Seared Ahi Tuna 


4 (5 Ounce) Ahi Tuna Steaks

1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

1/4 Teaspoon Garlic Powder

1/4 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper

1/2 Tablespoon Butter

2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

1 Teaspoon Whole Peppercorns


  1. Season the tuna steaks with salt, garlic powder, 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.
  3. Serve as an appetizer or main course with rice pilaf, sauteed snow peas and rolls.
