– 2 yellowfin tuna steaks – Zest of 1 lemon – 2 tablespoons lemon juice – 1 teaspoon black pepper (coarsely ground) – 2 tablespoons olive oil – Salt to taste – Fresh parsley for garnish (optional) – Lemon wedges for serving


Marinate the Tuna: 1. In a bowl, combine the lemon zest, lemon juice, black pepper, olive oil, and a pinch of salt. Mix well to create a marinade. 2.

2. Place the tuna on the hot grill or pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side for a medium-rare doneness, or adjust the time according to your preference. Serve: 1. Once cooked, remove the tuna from the grill or pan. Allow it to rest for a couple of minutes. 2. Garnish with fresh parsley if desired, and serve the lemon pepper tuna steaks with lemon wedges on the side.
