The Trick to Cooking Ahi Tuna Steak
Ahi Tuna Steak can be cooked on the grill. But, I’ve found it’s best cooked pan seared. It doesn’t matter what recipe you use. Usually, with Ahi Tuna, the simpler, the better. Salt, pepper, lemon pepper, extra virgin olive oil. Done.
The trick, you’ll find, is not to overcook the fish. Even if you generally like your food cooked well done, Ahi Tuna is a food you want to cook as little as possible. As it cooks, it very quickly hardens, so it’s good to make sure the center is nice and red (or pink).
