I kept putting this recipe off - tuna steaks are expensive! But we finally had something to celebrate, so we bit the bullet and bought some. Except, that my husband overbought (who's going to complain if he's doing the groceries, right?!?), so we invited friends.
And I overcooked it. My fault. AND IT WAS STILL ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS. So, other than expense, it's an easy, quick, foolproof recipe. How wonderful is that?
