Tuna steaks are a type of fish that is commonly consumed in many parts of the world. Tuna are a species of saltwater fish that are known for their firm, meaty texture and rich, flavorful taste. They are typically caught in the wild and are considered to be a healthy food, as they are high in protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamins B and D.

Tuna steaks are cut from the loin of the fish and are typically about 1 inch thick. They can be cooked in a variety of ways, such as grilling, pan-searing, broiling, and baking. They are often served rare or medium-rare, but can also be cooked through if desired.

When preparing tuna steaks, it’s important to handle them carefully and not overcook them, as they can become dry and tough. Tuna steaks should be cooked to an internal temperature of 145 °F (63 °C) for safety and can be grilled, seared, or broiled. They can be seasoned with a variety of herbs and spices, such as black pepper, cumin, or cayenne pepper, or marinated in a flavorful liquid such as soy sauce, lemon juice, or olive oil.

wonderful meaty fish with a subtle flavour, perfect for char-grilling. Wild tuna are large, impressive fish with smooth, bullet-shaped bodies, deeply forked tail fins and thick, glossy (and sometimes patterned) skin.

Tuna is widely available, but can sometimes see a dip in availability due to the monsoon season and where the tuna has been landed.

Serious sustainability issues surround this fish, particularly when whole shoals are caught using large nets (such as with the purse-seining method). It is widely agreed that albacore tuna caught by pole is the best option as these fish are landed individually.

Tuna is cleaned, skinned and cut into loins upon capture; there are very rarely any residual bones, so the fish requires a minimal amount of preparation. For cooking it is best brushed with oil and lightly seasoned; pan-frying, chargrilling and barbecuing are the best methods of cooking. Tuna is often cooked ‘tataki’ style: the fish is seared very quickly on the outside and served completely raw in the middle. A dressing of soy and sesame with nam pla, ginger and chilli all work brilliantly with tuna. Good-quality tuna is also used for Japanese sushi and sashimi.

  1. To serve, place the tuna steaks onto plates. Squeeze over some lemon juice and serve with a wedge of lemon, a dollop of salsa verde and a sprig of parsley each.
