Pan-Seared Tuna Steaks with Spanish Olives & Herbs

– Pan-Seared Tuna Steaks with Spanish Olives & Herbs –

These Pan-Seared Tuna Steaks with Spanish Olives & Herbs have an incredible Mediterranean flavor and the entire dish is done in under 30 minutes. This recipe features perfectly seared tuna steaks with Spanish olives and a selection of fresh and dried herbs, which makes for an impressive dish. Pair these tuna steaks with a Goat Cheese & Spinach Salad for an easy, tasty and healthy meal. As we all know tuna is loaded with protein, offer´s a good dose of omega-3s and is low in calories, plus it´s naturally gluten-free. I used frozen yellow fin tuna steaks to make this recipe, just because finding fresh tuna steaks can be difficult, I just thawed them out before cooking. The good thing about buying frozen is that you save big bucks, but if you can find fresh tuna steaks, even better.

– How to Perfectly Sear Tuna Steaks –

The tuna steaks I used where 1/2 inch thick, so to perfectly sear them I used a non-stick frying pan, heated it with a medium-high heat and added 2 tablespoons of extra virgin Spanish olive oil. The perfect sear on this thickness was 2 minutes per side, if your tuna steaks are thicker go a bit longer. Some people like their tuna steaks to be medium-rare, but I always shoot for a medium cook. The perfect sear includes a crust on the outside, but the inside is perfectly moist and soft.
