These Seared Ahi Tuna Steaks in the Cast Iron pan are absolutely delicious and so simple to make! The total prep and cook time is under 6 minutes. The Cast Iron Seared Tuna is a really baller home cooked date night meal main dish, and the fact that it is so incredibly easy to make is hard to truly believe.


  • Cast Iron Skillet
  • 1+ lb Ahi Tuna Steak
  • 1 Tbsp Avocado Oil
  • Pink Himalayan Sea Salt
  • Black Peppercorn Grinder
  • Chili Powder


  1. Coat the Cast Iron Skillet the 1 tbsp of Avocado Oil.  Avocado oil is preferred  because of its high smoke point.
  2. Heat the cast iron over an open flame on HIGH while you grind the black peppercorn into the pan. Leave the burner on HIGH and let the peppercorn soften into the pan while you move onto step 3.
  3. Generously apply both the sea salt and chilli powder on both sides of the ahi tuna steaks, don’t be shy here. Load them bad boys up good.
  4. Gently lay the steaks into the cast iron, still on HIGH and sear for 1 ½ minutes each side for rare. 2 minutes per side for a little less rare.


  • Don’t be tempted to cook these more, seared ahi with the inside raw is absolutely banging
  • This is easily one of the simplest recipes in Simple Bachelor Food Prep so you can use it when you are short on time
  • Since it is raw fish, don’t plan on eating these for multiple days. I like to do this as a day of and for ONE next day only
