Tuna Cooking Tips
Tuna is a popular staple in many household pantries, sushi bars and grill houses.
Tuna can range in color from such a pale pink it is almost white to a deep redish brown similar to raw beef. Some tuna steaks may have darker brown areas which are fine to eat but they may have a stronger taste.
Below are some tips that will help you when preparing and cooking tuna.
- If you are using your frozen fish remove the plastic and thaw slowly in your fridge or leave it in the plastic to soak in cool water.
- When marinating tuna, consider using mild flavors and oil based marinades that enhance and compliment the flavor of the fish, not hide it.
- Always oil your pan or grill before cooking tuna.
- It is really important to not overcook tuna. If you are grilling or frying the fish 2 minutes if usually the maximum, if you are baking the tuna it is best to wrap it in foil and bake for 10-15 minutes at 375.
