Christmas came early at the Davis house this year. 🎁We got the BEST package in the mail last week. A box of TUNA! 🐟 No joke. The biggest, thickest tuna steak that I've ever seen in my life! This particular tuna was caught, cut, packaged and shipped to us by my favorite brother. 🎣
Seriously, coolest gift ever. From the moment that I found out that a tuna steak was headed to my address, potential recipes started swirling around my brain. I wanted to make the most of this cherished gift and I definitely didn't want to ruin it by cooking it wrong. 😬 Ahh... the pressure.
After MUCH deliberation, I decided to marinate my tuna steak and then grill it. Easy enough, right? I got my tuna steak marinating by 9:00 AM and then I patiently waited for dinner time to cook it. Even though I intended to grill my marinated tuna steak on my Big Green Egg, my plans were derailed by the weather. Who would have guessed that we would be under a tornado warning at precisely the time that I wanted to cook?
Cooking my tuna indoors seemed like a much safer option so I heated the biggest skillet that I had in the kitchen and hoped for the best. The tuna steak came out so tender and delicious that I'm not even upset that I couldn't use the grill. I don't know if grilling it could have made it any better because this tuna was pretty near perfect.
Marinated Tuna Steaks
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
2 Tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
2 Tablespoons fresh oregano, chopped
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
This is what our tuna steak looked like when it arrived at our front door.
Heat olive oil in skillet to smoking. Add tuna steak and cook until browned on bottom.
Flip carefully and cook to desired doneness.
A huge thank you to my favorite brother for sharing his tuna with us. It was even more delicious than I imagined would to be. I may never be able to buy tuna from the grocery store again. 😅
