- 2 tuna steaks
- Oil, for frying
- ½ cup all purpose flour
- Salt and pepper to taste
Heat about ½ inch of oil in a large pan over medium heat.
To know if the oil is ready to fry, place a wooden chopstick in the oil, point down, perpendicular to the pan. Allow the tip of the chopstick to touch the bottom of the pan. If the oil bubbles around the chopstick within three seconds, it’s hot enough to start frying!
Salt and pepper your tuna steak. Place it in the flour and then flip, making sure that the flour covers both sides.
Add the tuna steak into the oil. It should begin sizzling immediately. Cook for 1-2 minutes on each side depending on the desired level of doneness, using a tong to flip between sides. The photos on this page show a tuna steak that was fried for 2 minutes on each side.
Remove from oil. Serve with tomatoes and cucumbers. Enjoy!
