IN MY KITCHEN: Seared Tuna Pepper Steaks

So I decided to start a new little section on my blog about my culinary adventures (and sometimes misadventures) David and I LOVE seafood so we are always cooking up something new. Most of the time I do a lot of research before I cook up something new so I thought I would share my tips, tricks, triumphs and failures with you guys in this new little section. The first documented culinary experience is Seared Tuna Pepper Steaks.

Here is the recipe I got on Pinterest. Click on the photo above to get more great recipes from New Frontiers Natural Marketplace!

TIP #1 for Seared Tuna Pepper Steaks… when it comes to Tuna, quality is REALLY important!! The best Tuna we have found is at Costco!!

The Costco near our house in Plano gets their seafood in Tuesdays and Thursdays! But check your local grocery store or local Costco to see when they get their shipments in so your seafood is as fresh as possible!

TIP #2 is all about timing. Make sure that you use the timer on your phone or on your oven/stovetop because when you’re cooking seafood a minute makes a big difference! Keep in mind sushi grade tuna (which is what you should be buying) can be eaten raw, and the worst way to serve tuna is over cooked! Our tuna steaks were about 2 1/2 inches thick and searing them for 3 minutes on each side was perfect! If yours are any thinner cook them for a shorter amount of time!

Don't be afraid to be adventurous in the kitchen! Enjoy!
