How to Make Pan-Seared Tuna Steaks with Sauce :

Step 1:

Heat two tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add tuna steaks to the hot skillet and cook for approximately 2 minutes for rare (add one minute per side for medium).

Step 2:

Flip tuna and season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Cook for another 2-3 minutes, depending on the desired level of doneness. Transfer tuna steaks to a plate and season with additional salt and black pepper, if desired. Keep warm.

Step 3:

Add remaining olive oil and chopped shallots to skillet, Sauté, stirring occasionally, until shallots are soft and start to turn golden brown, approximately 3 minutes.

Step 4:

Add white wine, chicken broth, lemon juice, and lemon slices to skillet. Deglaze the pan by scraping up any brown bits from the bottom with a spatula. Cook, stirring frequently until the liquid is reduced by half.

Step 5:

Reduce heat to medium and add capers. Stir to combine and cook for another minute or until heated through.

Step 6:

Transfer the tuna steaks onto individual serving plates and top with a “melted” lemon slice and a spoonful of the lemon-caper sauce and serve immediately with your favorite sides. Enjoy this pan seared tuna!
