Pan-Seared Tuna with Lime Pepper Crust
Adapted from a recipe created by Simply Seafood

Serves 4

Zest and juice of one (1) lime*
2 teaspoons dried thyme leaves
1/2 to 1 teaspoons coarsely ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 to 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

*You can substitute 1 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon zest and 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice in place of the lime.

  • Rinse the tuna and pat dry with paper towels. Grate the zest from the lime (you should have about 1 1/2 teaspoons), then squeeze the juice and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, combine lime zest, thyme, pepper and salt; stir to mix. Lightly rub both sides of the tuna with olive oil. Rub the seasoning mix on the tuna steaks; coating them well.
  • Using a heavy bottomed sauté pan or a cast-iron pan, warm the olive oil. Increase the heat to high and place the tuna in the pan. Sear for 1 minute, then turn over carefully, reducing the heat to medium. Sear the other side for 1 more minute until medium rare. (Do not overcook the tuna or it will become dry and lose its flavor.)
  • Pour the lime juice over the tuna right after you take them from the stove, then serve.
