Seared Ahi Tuna

I have been asked several times for this recipe so I thought I'd oblige. This is a favorite at my house. We LOVE tuna. It doesn't matter if its raw, seared, long as its not out of a can...I'm all over it. This recipe is great for an amazing meal when you're short on time. Enjoy the fruits of your labor...err....without the labor. Sorry ladies...I don't have the same solution for're on your own!

Ahi Tuna Filets (fresh is best)
Butchers Block Pepper (this is just a course ground pepper)
McCormick Grill Mates: Montreal Steak Seasoning
Kosher Salt

Season 1 side of the tuna filet with Pepper, Steak Seasoning and then lightly salt with kosher salt both sides. Just place face down on a hot cast iron skillet for 45 seconds and flip for another 45 seconds, That just sears the outside and leaves the center rare. Remove from skillet. Using a VERY sharp knife cut the filet into 1/2 inch wide slices. To serve, separate them just slightly so they look as if they have fallen like dominoes to one side. Try serving them along side my Brussel Sprouts and a cauliflower puree for an incredibly healthy meal!
