Ahi Tuna Steak with Peppercorns

IMG_2524Here’s a quick and easy recipe for folks who love tuna!  The peppercorns give it just the right flavor on top of the already great tuna taste.   I read a recipe similar to this and thought I’d try it with the ahi tuna steaks and it turned out nicely!


ahi tuna steaks

whole peppercorns – 1 tbs per steak

1 tbs butter

1 tbs olive oil


In a large skillet, melt the butter with the olive oil.  Once the butter is completely melted, add the peppercorns.   Allow the peppercorns to cook for about 7 minutes on medium, stirring occasionally.  If your pan starts to smoke, turn down the heat!

After 7 minutes, add the tuna steaks.  Cook for about 1 and a half to 2 minutes each side, for rare to medium rare.  Top with the cooked peppercorns and serve!
