4 6-oz. tuna steaks
4 Tbsp. peppercorn blend, crushed or course ground
oil for cooking
3 large sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced into fries
1 lemon, quartered
4 sprigs fresh herbs (thyme, rosemary), for garnish
sea salt to taste
fresh ground pepper to taste
What to do:
1. Preheat oven to 375°F. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, add sweet potato, 1 Tbsp. oil, and season with salt and pepper. Toss ingredients to coat. Evenly distribute the seasoned fries on a full-size cookie sheet. Place cookie sheet on the middle rack in the preheated oven.
2. Cook fries for 15-25 min. or until fries are golden brown and tender. Remove from oven and serve immediately.
3. Preheat a large-sized sauté pan over medium-high heat. Season both sides of the tuna steaks with salt and course ground pepper. Add 1 Tbsp. of olive oil to the preheated sauté pan.
4. Carefully add the tuna steaks to the sauté pan. Cook tuna steaks to preferred doneness (tuna cooks very quickly and is usually served rare). Serve tuna steaks with sweet potato fries and garnish with lemon and fresh herbs.
