Tuna is both a simple protein to prepare and a rewarding fish to serve, when handled properly high quality tuna healthy flavorful and beautiful. Begin with a trimmed thick center cut piece of tuna loin. Put your pan over high heat and turn your exhaust fan on. Add a high smoke point oil and give it twenty seconds to heat up. Before your oil begins to smoke carefully place the tuna into the hot pan some chefs choose not to season the fish before searing as the salt pulls out moisture and inhibits brown color from developing. Leave it to sear until it develops a beautiful brown crust usually about 30 seconds but it could be more or less time. It all depends on your burner. Once all sides are brown remove it from the heat and allow it to rest for a few minutes before slicing.
