Pan Seared Tuna Steaks w/ Lemon Dill Sauce

Standard

Until a few years ago I thought the only way to eat tuna was from a can. I am not a huge fan of canned tuna & I usually have to mix quite a bit of stuff with it so I don’t actually taste the tuna. Tuna steaks however are absolutely delicious! I may have overcooked these a bit because I was scared of the pink center, but they were still really good!
