We intended to stop in Leavenworth, but town was packed for an Autumn parade. We stopped at the quilt shop outside of town and ate our lunch instead..
10 ounces ahi tuna steaks, 2 steaks, 5 ounces each
1 teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
½ tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon whole peppercorns
1. Season the tuna steaks with salt and cayenne pepper.
2. Melt the butter with the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the peppercorns in the mixture until they soften and pop, about 5 minutes. Gently place the seasoned tuna in the skillet and cook to desired doneness, 1 1/2 minutes per side for rare.
Be sure to use kosher salt, not table salt!
