Tuna's firm texture and mild to moderate flavor are just a few of the reasons why it's so popular, especially for canning. Chefs love getting creative with fresh tuna, but it's also easy to fix at home. We'll teach you everything you need to know about this delicious fish, including how to cook fresh tuna, how to buy and store tuna, how to grill tuna, and more!
Tuna needs a watchful eye during cooking so it remains tender and moist. Because it gets dry and chewy when overcooked, the center should still be pink when it is done cooking. Some people like their tuna even more rare in the center.
Searing tuna steaks in a hot skillet caramelizes the surfaces of the fish and locks in the moisture. Start with 3/4-inch-thick steaks.
