Seared Tuna Steaks
This time of year calls for light, yet satisfying meals. Simply seared tuna topped with an herbacious heirloom tomato salad definitely fits the season.
There are three different herbs in the relish, but if you don’t want to invest in all of them, up the amount of your preferred herb to compensate.
Combine tomatoes, cucumber, mint, dill, cilantro, and vinegar for the relish; season with salt and pepper.
Sear tuna steaks in oil in a sauté pan over high heat to desired doneness, 2 minutes per side for medium-rare.
Serve tuna steaks with relish.
For a relish that isn’t too watery, look for heirloom pear and grape tomatoes rather than larger ones.
Pat the tuna steaks dry so they’ll get a good sear. Excess moisture can cause them to steam.
Since tuna steaks are lean, cooking them past medium-rare will dry them out.
