Ingredients

  • 2 5 oz. Ahi tuna steaks
  • 3 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper

Instructions

  • Take the Ahi Tuna out of the refrigerator. Remove the packaging, and set aside.
  • In a large dish, mix all of the marinade ingredients together. Reserve about four tablespoons of the marinade. Add the tuna steaks to the dish, and turn them until they’re well-coated. Set aside, and let them rest at room temperature for about 20-30 minutes.
  • Heat up a non-stick skillet over high heat. Sear the tuna steaks for about 1-3 minutes on each side, or until the steaks reach their desired doneness.*
  •  Place the cooked steaks on a cutting board, and slice against the grain into ½-inch thick slices. Transfer the steak slices to a serving plate and drizzle with the reserved maple-mustard marinade. Serve immediately.

Notes

*It is best to leave the middle of the tuna steak raw. Searing time will depend on your personal preference and on how thick your tuna steaks are. I like to stay and watch the steaks closely while searing. It is easy to see how the steak changes color as it cooks, so when it looks like it’s 25% cooked on the bottom, I flip it and cook it for the same amount of time on the other side.
