This blackened tuna recipe is very simple but it's my favorite way to have tuna. Seared fish steaks are a Cajun tradition.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Generously coat tuna steaks on both sides with Cajun seasoning.

  • Heat oil and butter in a large skillet over high heat until nearly smoking.

  • Arrange tuna steaks in the skillet and cook until blackened on one side, about 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until desired doneness is reached, 3 to 4 more minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 140 degrees F (60 degrees C) for medium-rare.
