Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Place 6 tablespoons of the fresh cilantro leaves in a small sieve. Immerse the sieve in the boiling water until the fresh cilantro is wilted, 10 to 15 seconds. Refresh with cold water and squeeze dry; leave the water boiling on the stove. Combine the blanched cilantro and 3 tablespoons of the olive oil in a mini-food processor or mortar and process or pound until pur?ed. Shred the remaining 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro.
Add the haricots verts to the boiling water and cook until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Drain, refresh with cold water and cut into 1/2-inch pieces.
Melt the butter in a large nonreactive skillet. Add the zucchini and yellow squash and saut? over moderately high heat until slightly softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the corn, scallion, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper and saut? until the corn is crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Add the haricots verts and cook, stirring once or twice, until the beans are heated through, about 1 minute longer; keep warm.
In a large heavy skillet, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil until very hot but not smoking. Season the tuna steaks generously on both sides with salt and pepper. Add them to the skillet and cook over high heat, turning once, until nicely seared on both sides but still rare within, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer the tuna to individual plates.
Stir the lime juice and shredded fresh cilantro into the warm vegetables and spoon them around the tuna steaks. Drizzle the cilantro oil over the fish and serve.
