Default Last Supper. Yellow Fin Tuna Recipe ?

Oklahoma season ends Sat so I'm cooking up a "different" type meal than normal for our last night of the season.

Buddy here at work gave me about 5 lbs of YF Tuna & 2 lbs of BF Tuna.

It's vacuum sealed, uncut. Straight from the guide service I'd imagine.

Buddy says to skin it and cut out red meat??? Cut into 1/2" steaks and marinate in a mixture/recipe he gave me. Recipe calls for OJ & Soy Sauce and I'm not real fond of either.

I'll have a mesquite wood grill to cook it on.

Where do I start?

I've never ventured into saltwater much, lol.

I'll have t-bones for back-up!

I’m not a big tuna fan, I usually give mine away. Pretty much the only way I’ll eat it is raw or poke. If you grill it you have to make sure you don’t overcook it. You want to sear it no more than a minute or so on each side.

Default Last Supper. Yellow Fin Tuna Recipe ?

https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/...recipe-1914316

This recipe right here is the best tuna Iíve ever had.
I think I messed with quantities of the first step to get it perfect but itís very good.

And I cook it medium rare as well

Slice and dip into soy sauce and get after it. If you gotta cook it, get your fire hot and coat fish in olive oil and season, I like Cajun. Sear it, ~30 seconds per side needs to be rare in the middle; medium rare tops

Or use whatever recipe in a skillet just sear the outside leaving inside raw. The less you cook it the better it is

I like to sear on mesquite fire to rare to med rare cook on tuna. Serve with asparagus and pasta with butter, shallot, garlic and caper sauce. Serve tuna on top of pasta with some of the sauce drizzled overtop.

Let me clarify....

I don't eat sushi. I don't like soy sauce. I like beef/venison steaks med/med rare.

So with that said....

Any BLACKENED Tuna recipes ?

If you cook it all the way through you will be highly disappointed in tuna.

If you like beef med rare should enjoy tuna med rare. I pan blackened mine in oil with salt n pepper n lime. Quick hot sear rare in the middle. Not sushi no soy sauce needed taste great. If you cook it too much it loses the firmness and gets flaky. Rare is the best way to eat it

I wouldn’t marinate it in anything for more than a few minutes prior to searing. Go nuts on blackened season and maybe a minute on each side in a red hot pan. Make sure you cut away all the bloodline, heavy tendons from the lower loin, or any part that’s gone brown. Cut’m thick.

Smoked blackfin and then made into tuna salad is scrumptious

Prep ? Just cut the skin off, cut out any major "bloodline", then slice into 1" steaks (across the grain) ?

I'm gonna marinate it bout 10 min, season the hell outta it, and put it on HOT mesquite fire/coals for 3 min per side (recipe calls for 5 min per side).

If it ain't no good, the t-bones only take about 3-4 min per side.

Thanks for all the insight.

3 mins is too long. Dats da cook time for the T-bones. 1 min at most for the fish. Oh man I can't believe you really gonna ruin good tuna. Well, after you burn it and no one likes it, at least make tuna salad out of it. Oh and marinating it and a seasoning the hell out of it is the first two mistakes lol

Default Last Supper. Yellow Fin Tuna Recipe ?


Needs to look something like this. Good sear and rare in the middle. If itís overdone itís chewy and fishy and not good at allÖ. Kinda like over cooking those steaks

Yes. 3 minutes a side is too long.

Think I might stick with steaks for last meal. Do the tuna at home on a flat top.

Anything over 30 second per side should be illegal.

Don’t over think seasoning either. Find a good blacken seasoning and sprinkle it on. Then grill high heat.

If pan searing, 8 like to add a sprinkle of sesame seeds to give it a little toasty flavor.

Grill wasn't "SUPER HOT". Fish was still med-rare in center. I'd actually rather had it a bit "doner", lol.
