"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. "
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 2y 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 3y 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 3y 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 4y 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 4y 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 4y agoMy wife and I loved this recipe, a touch too salty but it tasted great. Will make this again.
DenJansen 4y 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 4y agoLoved this as very quick and easy. Would use less salt next time though as too much for my taste.
