Servings 1


  • 1 tuna steak
  • Olive oil
  • 1/2 a lemon
  • Salt & Pepper


  • Get a pan on medium to medium-high heat.
  • Brush both sides of tuna with olive oil.
  • Salt & pepper both sides.
  • Once your pan is hot, begin cooking tuna, cooking for about 2 minutes on each side. To get an idea for how cooked your tuna is, just watch as the color changes the longer it cooks.
  • Once the first side has finished cooking, and you have flipped the tuna over, squeeze your lemon over top of the tuna.
  • This will give you a rare to medium-rare tuna (think of it like a regular steak! You still want it pink in the middle).
  • Once your tuna is done cooking, slice it and serve it on it's own, or on a bed of rice or salad.
