NOW TO THE KITCHEN…

Ingredients

* 4 – 8oz. fresh tuna steaks
* 4– tablespoons mixed peppercorns, crushed
* Optional: 4 tablespoons finely diced fresh cilantro instead of peppercorns
* 2- tablespoons olive oil
* Salt and pepper to taste
* (Mango Papaya salsa, available at Dirks)

Directions

* Leave tuna out at room temperature for at least 1/2 hour to take the refrigerator chill off the fish. This will insure your fish cooking more evenly and still giving you a rare pink center.

* On a hot grill, cook on each side about 2 to 3 minutes.The same time cooking appplies to a pan on the stovetop.
* Remember you can eat it raw! Tuna cooked less is better than tuna cooked more!
