2 tbsp canola or vegetable oil for searing.

1. Mix all spices together including salt, pepper & cayenne.

Pat dry the tuna and rub lightly with oil.

Roll into spice mix and pat down so spices will adhere.

Allow the oil and pan to get really hot.

Place tuna on pan and let it sit on each side for 10 to 15 seconds per side or until brown (not burned) on all sides, including the ends.
