Try this great tuna steak recipe...

" Tuna Steak with a pepper and fennel seed crust"

  • one tuna steak
  • one teaspoon of ground pepper
  • one tablespoon of fennel seeds
  • butter
  • salt

1. rinse thetuna and dry it on a paper towel
2. grind a tbsp of pepper and a tbsp of fennel seeds - i used a mortar for that
3. pour the spices on a cutting board and coat the tuna steak on one side
4. put another board on top and weight it down with a bowl of water or the mortar you used earlier ... let the tuna rest like this for 20 minutes

5. in a pan, melt a knob of butter and fry the tuna steak over medium heat on both sides, the coated side first. i am always going for a well done piece of meat, but if you prefer you can have your tuna steak medium rare too

6. season with salt before arranging on the plate
7. you can make a nice gravy for your veggies if you pour a little cream in the pan and bring it to a boil once more. add some of the ground spices too

8. the tuna steak goes well with vegetables - in my case steamed swiss chard and boiled potatos

It'll be delicious! The tuna steak recipe is ready to serve...great taste !
