Olive Oil Poached Tuna

Serves 4


4 cups extra virgin olive oil

4 6-ounce tuna steaks, 2 inches thick

2 chili peppers

2 cloves garlic

1 teaspoon whole peppercorns

2 sprigs thyme

2 bay leaves

Method of Preparation:

1. Rinse tuna steaks and pat dry. In a brazier, heat enough oil to completely cover the steaks. Add all of the ingredients except for the

fish. Bring the oil to a simmer and let it heat the aromatics until the aroma is strong. Lay in the steaks and bring the oil back to a very

slow simmer. Transfer the pan to an oven and roast uncovered at 180 degrees F for 15 to 20 minutes. Cooking time will vary depending on thickness

of the marlin steak so be sure to check half way through.
