Whatchoo think... a quick coat in soy sauce with about 1/2 teaspoon ginger powder and a salt and pepper rub before searing? i don't have any fresh ginger right now. What about a quick rub with crushed garlic in addition to the other stuff?

Save the soy for after it's cooked. You just want some simple flavors so you don't mask the flavor of the tuna. GEt your pan or grill REALLY hot to sear it.

thanks. should i just use some soy sauce for dipping? is the garlic and ginger powder and salt and pepper gonna be good?

also, is it ok to use olive oil if the pan is gonna be scorching, or should i use canola?

went with the au poivre... tuna was cooked perfectly, but that was way too much pepper. not what i expected, but i just wasn't thinking properly. was really good after i scraped a bunch of it off! i think next time i'll go with some chinese 5 spice and a coating of sesame seeds.

pretty basic, ain't it?

also if i do that, should i be liberal with the 5 spice, or use it sparingly? do i still use s&p?

what i would do is put a shake of the 5 spice in about 2 tablespoons of oil (olive or canola) - let the flavors marry and then rub the tuna steak w/ that - and then coat w/ the sesame seeds

the oil is a really great host for the spice

When ever I do tuna steaks, I like to blanch them in hot oil , then I stick them In the oven at 450 degrees for 2 hours, and then boil them till they fall apart into little pieces ( about 3 hours).
