This is the best recipe! We make it regularly now, after trying it a few months ago. We put chives in the lemon butter instead of parsley.

I'd never cooked tuna steaks before, so I was I little bit nervous. Followed the recipe exactly and they turned out excellent! Simple and healthy! My family enjoyed eating them. Can't wait to make them next week when my in-laws come.

Tuna Fish

Guest October 5, 2021 3:00 AM
Tuna is a very interesting saltwater species that is widely found all over the world. The fish mainly belongs to the Scombridae family and dwells in warm seas. However, consuming tuna fish is very helpful for our health. This is why we should eat the fish at least thrice a week.

We tried this recipe on small tuna steaks. Every single one was devoured. I had some concern coating the outside edge with black pepper since half the family avoids spice although we found it flavors very well with the lemon and the remainder of the tuna.
