  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 tuna steaks (6 to 8 ounces each)
  • 1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, plus lemon wedges, for serving (optional)


  1. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high. Season tuna with salt and pepper. Cook, without turning, until golden brown on one side, 3 to 5 minutes. Turn over, and continue to cook until medium-rare, 1 to 2 minutes more. Transfer tuna to a plate, and set aside.

  2. In a medium bowl, toss together tomatoes, onion, lemon juice, and remaining tablespoon oil; season salad with salt and pepper.

  3. Serve tuna on top of tomato-onion salad, with lemon wedges alongside, if desired.
