This is an elegant and simple way to prepare tuna steaks whether it's ahi or another species. As good as you'll get in a restaurant.
This was very easy and tasty, however the entire house filled with smoke and I literally had to open all the windows and have my husband take our baby outside. Now I'm no cook, but I thought this was odd because I followed the directions exactly as they were written. Next time I will cook at a lower heat and forget about trying to pop the peppercorns, because this was when the oil began to burn and fill the house with smoke (and they never popped anyway). - 01 Nov 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Absolutely wonderful! And my husband raved about it as well. I did have to cook the peppercorns a bit longer as mentioned in another review, but it was worth it. I'll make it again for company. - 29 May 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This is very good but there is too much salt in the recipe. I made this for 4 and the recipe called for 2 tsp kosher salt. I only used 1 tsp and it was still salty. But other than that, everyone loved it. Will definitely make again. Just with less salt. I also used yellow tail tuna steaks. - 10 Mar 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
