"It is a good recipe. The kids and I inhaled it. I will definitely grill the steaks next time. As I don't own a cast iron skillet yet, the tuna stuck to my teflon and the oven seems to dry out the fish (and I like mine cooked). The grill I hope will keep it moist and yet not rare. A bit much on the seasoning for my taste, it overwhelmed the natural taste of the fish, but this is an easy fix. I served it with butter and herb noodles, and sweet buttery baked carrots (to off set the spice), with biscuits. Rice would great side to this meal. "- GrEEnEyedGoldiE

Top-ranked recipe named "Cajun Blackened Tuna"
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Combine paprika, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, cumin, pepper, and cayenne pepper on a plate. Rub butter over tuna steaks. Press tuna steaks into spice mixture; gently rub spices onto fish.
Heat a large heavy ovenproof skillet (cast-iron works great) over high heat for 2 minutes or until skillet smokes. Cook tuna steaks 1 minute on each side. They will make some smoke, this is normal. Transfer skillet to oven and roast fish 5 minutes for medium-rare doneness.

Glenn2iron 2 months agoLoved this! Made it in a Dutch Oven, a tad more cooking time but no mess! Cut the salt in half, a little more Cumin and used smoked Paprika. If you can't grill because it's the middle of winter this is the way to go!
danielcerta 1 year agoGreat recipe! Used hot paprika, not sweet (didn't have the sweet stuff in the house). Experimented once with added cayenne (1tb) and got too much smoke & fumes. I've made this four times now - excellent!
bab311 1 year agoGreat recipe. I added the Cheyenne pepper and it was a nice touch. My fiancé doesn't like seafood and she even loved it! Thanks!
Kika57 2 years agoGreat simple recipe; but many flavors- just cut salt in half, and if you like the pink only do 3 minutes in the oven.
BennyBoiler 2 years agoI'm a novice at cooking fish so was looking for some inspiration for the bargain tuna I picked up. This recipe was so quick and simple and easy to change the coating to suit taste/ available spices. I had this with egg noodles cooked with soy sauce and really impressed the wife!
Fanappy 2 years agoMy wife and I loved this recipe, a touch too salty but it tasted great. Will make this again.
DenJansen 2 years agoGood Lord these were amazing, and ridiculously easy! We had 2 1-inch tuna steaks, so I used 2/3 portions, which turned out to be the perfect amount. Didn't have oregano or garlic powder, so I used 1 1/3 tsp garlic salt instead of the garlic powder and salt. My wife and I devoured these things, and now she thinks I'm some master chef. Thank you so much!
matchj1 2 years agoLoved this as very quick and easy. Would use less salt next time though as too much for my taste.

Dhaman 3 years agoLove this recipe; just had it for the second time. Made this with Cajun rice. Chase it with a cold frosty beverage of your choice as I sure did...wow.
AAPAAT 3 years agoMy wife loves tuna but I find fish quite bland. Rustled this up in no time and will be doing again soon! Spicy but not over powering - quick and easy. Will try the same spices on pork & chicken as well.
cathy.olson 4 years agovery quick and easy recipe. I will only bake for approx 3 mins as I like my steaks rare.
followmetofenway 5 years agoWow! This is a really quick and very delicious recipe. So glad we tried it. You could easily get away with cutting the salt by 1/2 or more.
