Yield: 4 servings

Level: Easy



  • Four 1-inch-thick fresh tuna steaks (about 4 pounds)
  • Olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


  • To grill the tuna, get a charcoal or stove-top cast-iron grill very hot. Brush the fish with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill each side for only 2 to 2 1/2 minutes. The center should be raw, like sushi, or the tuna will be tough and dry. Allow to rest for 5 to 10 minutes and serve.

This is the only way to cook fresh tuna. It's also good with a tiny drizzle of sesame oil and a light sprinkle of toasted sesame seeds. Saute a big skillet of fresh baby spinach with a little garlic and you've got a great meal. See All Reviews Post Review
