Ingredients

Lemon Pepper Butter:
Tuna:
Caramelized Lemons:

Directions

Tuna:

For the lemon pepper butter: In a small bowl, combine the butter, lemon zest, lemon juice, pepper, and garlic powder, stirring until smooth. Cover and chill.

For the tuna: Preheat the grill to medium-high heat, about 350 degrees F. Spray the grill rack with nonstick, nonflammable cooking spray.

Brush the bread slices evenly with 2 tablespoons olive oil. Grill the bread until toasted, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove from the grill and set aside.

Brush the tuna evenly with the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil. Sprinkle each steak evenly with salt and pepper. Grill the tuna for 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until desired degree of doneness. Place each tuna steak over 1 slice grilled bread. Top each tuna steak with desired amount of lemon pepper butter. Garnish with Caramelized Lemon Slices, if desired. Serve immediately.

Caramelized Lemons:

Preheat a grill to medium-high heat.

Slice the lemons. Dip the cut side down into a bowl of sugar. Place on the grill, cut-side down, and grill until caramelized, 2 to 3 minutes.
