Cook's Notes

The fish can also be cooked on the grill, but make sure it's very hot, so that the outside of the tuna is seared before the inside is cooked through.

    I buy individually wrapped and frozen ahi tuna at the warehouse club (Sam's). I wanted a quick meal for one when I want something healthy. I tried this and in under 20 mins the meal was done. I did not re-chill the butter, due to my schedule, I just melted it and added the capers. This steamed broccoli and brown rice made a terrific meal in no time. I will be making this again.
