How can cook tuna steak in 2020

 

Follow our tips for buying and cooking tuna steaks. This meaty and tasty fish is delicious grilled or fried, especially when marinated in herbs and spices.

 

Tuna has firm meaty meat and a rich, strong flavor due to its high oil content. Because tuna is oily, meat sheds faster than other fish, so buy it as fresh as you can. The tuna will have already been peeled, boned, and cut into portions when you buy it, making it a very easy fish to use as there is minimal preparation other than adding flavor, and it is exceptionally quick to cook.

 

Buying

Tuna is mainly sold as fillets. You can also see tenderloin strips for sushi and sashimi, and paler belly fillets (bull in Japanese) that are cut from the fat belly. Look for firm, dense dark red or dark red meat when buying tuna loin or steaks, and make sure it’s from a sustainable source – check the Marine Stewardship Council website for the latest tips. Choose thicker fillets as these will cook much better

 

How to cook tuna

The tuna dries quite quickly and crumbles, so it must be cooked very briefly over high heat in a frying pan, on a griddle or on a barbecue; or cooked under oil (candied), sous vide or simmered in a sauce. Tuna can be served lightly cooked, or cooked in a crust on the outside and raw in the center, known as tataki in Japan. The pan or grill makes it easier to control.

 

Because tuna has a fairly robust flavor, you can easily add herbs, spices, and flavors to it without worrying about overwhelming the flavor. Marinating the tuna steak will add flavor to the surface, but will not make it juicier; Keeping a close eye on the steak while cooking is the only way to make sure it doesn’t dry out.
