Tuna Steak with Tomato Relish

tuna fish cooked with tomatoes
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 17 minutes
  • Total Time: 22 minutes
  • Yield: 2 1x
  • Category: Main
  • Cuisine: Fish, Seafood


  • 2 pounds tuna steak
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic (finely chopped)
  • 1 pint heirloom or cherry tomatoes (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 medium onion (finely chopped)
  • 8 leaves fresh basil (roughly chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • lemon wedges (to serve)


  1. In a pan over high heat, add 2 tbsp olive oil, garlic and onions, and cook for 3-4 minutes, until onions are translucent. Add tomatoes and sugar, and cook for 5 minutes, or until the mixture is almost like a sauce. Turn off the heat, add basil and season with salt, and pepper.
  2. Use a separate pan to cook the tuna. Season the tuna with salt and pepper on both sides. Wait until the pan is hot and add the remaining 1 tbsp olive oil. Add tuna steaks and lower the heat to medium/high. Cover and cook until well done (about 7 minutes). Covering the pan keeps the fish moist, I use this trick for fish, chicken and even meat; it works like a charm.
