Add the oil to a large stainless steel pan over high heat. When the oil is hot, carefully lay the tuna steaks in the pan and cook for 1-2 minutes per side depending on the thickness of the tuna steak. Remove From the pan and place on a cutting board.  Allow the tuna steaks to rest for 10 minutes.

Using a very sharp knife, thinly slice the tuna against the grain. Serve with the zesty salad and a handful of Solula Carribean Lime Kettle-Cooked Plantain Tostones.
