This is a wonderful way to cook tuna steak on the stovetop. With these ingredients the tuna comes out tasting like steak.


    5 oz. yellowfin tuna

    sea salt & black pepper to taste

    cayenne pepper to taste

    1 tsp. peppercorns, black, organic

    1 tsp. butter

    1 tbsp. coconut oil


Heat coconut oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Add a small handful of peppercorns into hot oil, and let them cook until they start to pop. When they begin popping, add butter, and swirl it around. Rub cayenne pepper on both sides of tuna steaks. Add tuna steaks to the pan, and season with salt and pepper. Cook two minutes per side for slightly pink center. Remove from pan and enjoy.

Serve with sauteed mixed vegetables (yellow squash, mushrooms, asparagus, onions) and a sliced tomato.
