Yellowfin Tuna in a Grill Pan

Yellowfin Tuna from Whole Foods probably shouldn't be placed on a paper plate for a picture, but life around here is a little crazy. (but the food is good!)

So, Jess bought this little splurge for us. Here's what she did:

She coated a Pampered Chef grill pan with Lemon Myrtle Infused Macadamia Nut Oil (from Amazon. Coconut Oil would also be delicious.)
She heated the pan up on medium heat, so she would get a sizzle when she placed the 2 big tuna steaks in the pan. She sprinkled liberally with freshly ground pepper, sea salt, and lemon pepper. She flipped them after about 4 minutes and cooked them another 4 minutes on the other side. ( Adjust here - we like ours still very pink in the center!)

Done. Clean, healthy protein and it's so very healthy. All you have to do is add your favorite fresh veggies on the side, like maybe Paleo Roasted Cauliflower.

Thanks, Jess.
