Pan Seared Ahi Tuna Steak

Quick, simple way to cook a tuna steak.  Pretty tasty. Pretty cheap.

Cost: ~$3.50 a serving


  • Non-stick pan w/ cover
  • Tongs
  • 1 tbsp measuring spoon
  • 8 oz Ahi Tuna Steak
    • Cut it in half so you have two tuna steaks around 4 oz each.
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
    • Whatever’s cheap and good.
  • 2 tbsp sake
    • Don’t bother with expensive sake, you’re just going to sump this into a hot pan.
  • 1 tsp wasabi aioli
    • Or S&B Wasabi Sauce, in a pinch.
  • Salt and pepper to taste
    • You don’t need to go buck wild, just a little kosher salt and some ground black pepper will go a long way.
  • Cut the tuna steak into two roughly equal portions, pat dry and lightly season with salt and pepper, then refrigerate for 20-30 minutes.
  • Heat the vegetable oil a non-stick pan over medium-high heat, then add tuna steaks to the pan.  Sear each side until a light brown crust starts to appear on the tuna.
  • Pour in the sake and cover, letting the tuna cook for about an additional minute. 
    • You can flip the tuna over and recover after 30 seconds if you’re feeling saucy.
  • Plate with steamed vegetables, drizzle with wasabi aioli, then enjoy!
