Cajun Blackened Tuna
One of the recipe provided by Big Oven"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

Cajun Blackened Tuna Preparation
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.
