I’ve recently fallen completely in love with seared tuna. Not just because it’s healthy, but because the flavor of this fish is really quite nice, even when purchased frozen. (The safest bet when you live nearly 400 miles from the nearest ocean.) cooking time is minimal, the family loves it, and it’s versatile without being terribly expensive. What’s not to love about it?
This is a second try of a recipe that I originally made with pouched tuna, but the texture of that particular dish was off, even if the flavor was good. I wanted to try a riff on the concept with fresh tuna instead, and I’m incredibly glad that I did, it was worth the second try without a doubt, as this version had far more flavor and a more pleasing texture by far.
If you’re looking for a lovely little introduction to spring, you can’t go wrong with this one.

What I would have done differently had I thought of it at the time:
I think less in the way of herbs would help here. perhaps changing out the Italian seasoning for some fresh thyme would do a better job. Also, I think the tuna could benefit from a bit of lemon zest seared right into the flesh to add a bit of zing. Otherwise, this was absolutely fabulous!
