1PoundSashimi Grade Albacore TunaCut into two equal pieces
2TablespoonsFreshly Ground Pepper
Heat a heavy bottom skillet over high heat (if you have cast iron, this is preferred).
Mix all of the spices together. Rub all over tuna steaks coating evenly.
Add olive oil to the skillet and heat until almost smoking.
Sear tuna on each side. You should only need to cook for 30 seconds to a minute. The goal is to have it cooked just enough that you can see about a cm worth of cooked fish round the outside (see the picture at the end).
Let the tuna rest for about 5 minutes, and slice about 1/2 inch thick.
