Recipe for Blackened Tuna

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 2 Tuna Steaks, 4 to 6 ounces each, 3/4 to 1 inch thick
  • 1 stick melted butter
  • Blackened seasoning Get Recipe

Recipe Instructions:

  1. First start with a little prep work. Prepare blackened seasoning and set aside. Next heat your cast iron skillet over high heat for about 10 minutes until very hot. The bottom of skillet will be ashy white when ready.
  2. Rinse your tuna steaks and pat them dry with paper towels. Dip one tuna steak at a time in the melted butter ensuring both sides of fish are covered with butter. Remove from butter without sitting fish down and sprinkle fish on both sides generously with seasoning, patting by hand. Repeat this step for the second piece of tuna.
  3. Place fish in cast iron skillet and cook for 4 to 6 minutes, turning over once halfway through cooking. Pour 1 teaspoon of melted butter over the top of the fillets initially and another on top of the fillets when you turn it over at the halfway point.
  4. Special Notes: If you decide to blacken more than two tuna steaks, be sure to wipe your cast iron skillet (caution its very hot) clean before coooking. Also, be sure your stove ventilation fan is working and in proper order, since blackening tends to create plenty of smoke.
