Recipe: Seared Pepper-Crusted Tuna Salad

IMG_3633The other night we were craving a light summer dinner, so I cooked seared tuna steaks to have on top of a spinach salad. It’s a really simple recipe, and really hits the spot! Jon claims its the best thing I’ve ever cooked.

Jon’s Review: “Ooooooaaaaammmm MMMMMM!!!!!!!!” (translation: I think Jon liked this).


  • two tuna steaks
  • salt, pepper & oregano
  • olive oil
  • spinach leaves
  • tomatoes, mushrooms, avocado (whatever salad ingredients you like best!)
  • balsamic salad dressing (grain mustard, olive oil & balsamic)

Rub salt, pepper, and oregano on the raw tuna steaks. Heat about a tablespoon of olive oil in a frying pan, and add tuna. Cook for approximately one minute, then flip sides. Cook for one additional minute and remove from heat. Slice and serve with your favorite summer salad. We had a simple tomato and spinach salad, and it was great.
