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.

ddahmsAmazingly great1y ago
Glenn2ironLoved 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!2y ago
danielcertaGreat 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!3y ago
bab311Great recipe. I added the Cheyenne pepper and it was a nice touch. My fiancé doesn't like seafood and she even loved it! Thanks!3y ago
Kika57Great simple recipe; but many flavors- just cut salt in half, and if you like the pink only do 3 minutes in the oven.4y ago
BennyBoilerI'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!5y ago
FanappyMy wife and I loved this recipe, a touch too salty but it tasted great. Will make this again.5y ago
DenJansenGood 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!5y ago
matchj1Loved this as very quick and easy. Would use less salt next time though as too much for my taste.5y ago
