Chef Chuck's Pesto Tuna


This tuna steak must be very fresh, and at least one inch thick. Be sure to preheat the pan, so it sears the tuna, this technique seals in the moisture and flavor. Fresh yellow fin tuna is a lean meat, with a large flake. This is one tender tuna. The pesto adds another element of flavor.
