Tuna sourced from Whole Foods in Franklin, Tn.
Dry Rub for Tuna:
1 teaspoon cumin seed (ground in mortal & pestle)
1 pinch garlic powder
1 pinch onion powder
1 pinch salt
1 pinch onion powder1 pinch cayenne pepper
1 (8-ounce) tuna steak
Mix the first four ingredients from above ingredients in a small bowl. Spread the dry rub over the entire piece of Tuna.
Using a small skillet, add 1 Tbsp of EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil) and heat to med-high. When the oil begins to smoke, place the Tuna in the skillet.
Cook for 1 minute and then turn the Tuna steak. Splash just a bit of fresh squeezed lime juice atop the Tuna and in the cooking pan. Cook for 1 minute. My total cooking time is 2 minutes as I want my tuna rare.
After cooking, allow 5 minutes to cool. Wrap the Tuna in Saran Wrap and place in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
Remove from refrigerator, slice thinly and enjoy. Add Soy Sauce and Wassabi if you prefer.
