Tuna is perfect for pan-frying. It is important that the steak isn’t cooked all the way through but is crispy on the outside and raw on the inside. We show you how easy it is here:
- Prepare the tuna steak by rubbing the fish with herb butter and/or rolling it in crushed pepper. Professionals advise against salting the tuna before frying, as the salt otherwise deprives the fish of moisture and makes it dry.
- Heat oil in a pan and fry the tuna steak on both sides until you get a brownish tint. Then fry the edges until crispy by placing the tuna steak upright in the pan. The entire cooking process takes at most two minutes.
- The finished dish will have a three-millimeter fried layer on the outside and the inner part will be pink and raw.
- Before serving, you can salt the steak a bit to keep the outer shell crispy.
- Now enjoy - bon appetit!
