How long do you cook the tuna? What heat? And do you marinate it or add the sauce? What kind do you buy? Sorry for tons of questions! I'm trying to learn to cook fish!

Hi Veronica. Tuna is a pretty hardy fish. The common mistake with tuna is over cooking it. The key is to try to get fresh sushi grade tuna. Most natural/organic stores with a seafood department have it, or you can order it online but you will pay for it. Many cooking methods work, but I prefer grilling or searing. Get the pan screaming hot and add a small amount of oil. Pat the tuna dry and add to the pan. Let it sear until you see the proteins coagulate to about 1/4 of the tuna, flip and repeat on the other side.

Tuna can be marinated but really takes on the flavor of marinade so I would not do it but a couple of hours. I make my own sauces that I learned through chef Todd Mohrs web cooking classes. Most of all have fun with it.
