Tuna Steak Recipe
Tuna is a very meaty fish and should be cooked like best steak, preferably seared on the outside in a hot griddle pan and the centre of the steak left pink.
Oil and season the fish first before adding the steak to a preheated pan. Avoid baking in the oven as it will dry out.
Stands up to oriental and Mediterranean flavours and spices and chillies. No creamy sauces though!
Once defrosted be sure to store below 4C to avoid histamines developing which can cause a reaction in some people
