Chef’s tip:

For best results, it is very important to dry your tuna before seasoning it with the Cajun spice mix. Don’t be afraid to let the oil smoke, as it must be good and hot before adding the tuna. Cooking time is very short; in just 30 seconds, it’s cooked to perfection. Let the tuna rest for a few minutes and use a sharp knife to slice it!


  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • Heaping 1/4 cup fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 4 tuna steaks
  • 1/4 cup Cajun spices
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1. In a food processor, combine the mayonnaise, cilantro, lime juice and cumin. Season and refrigerate.
  2. Sprinkle all sides of the tuna with the Cajun spices.
  3. Heat the vegetable oil in a non-stick frying pan over high heat.
  4. Once the oil begins to smoke slightly, add the tuna steaks and sear for 30 seconds on each side.
  5. Thinly slice the tuna and serve with a salad, rice, or your favourite side!
