Florida Seafood Recipe

Seared Yellowfin Tuna Steaks With Fennel

3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 small to medium-sized fennel bulbs, thinly sliced
  salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
4  6-ounce yellowfin tuna steaks, 1 inch thick
1 to 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped
  lemon wedges

Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over low heat in a large sauté pan. Add garlic and cook until transparent. Add fennel; cover pan and cook over low heat for 10 to 15 minutes until tender. Add salt and pepper to taste. Set aside. Lightly salt and pepper the tuna steaks. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a nonstick sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add tuna steaks and sear for 30 to 45 seconds on each side. Place the steaks on top of the fennel in the other pan. Cover sauté pan and place over medium heat for about 1 minute; turn steaks and cook 1 minute more. Check for doneness by pressing the steaks with your finger. They should be soft to the touch and slightly pink in the middle. Do not to overcook or the tuna will be dry. Sprinkle parsley over steaks and serve with lemon wedges on the side.
