Lisa’s Tuna Steaks in Breadcrumbs with Pesto Ingredients:

3 or 4 Tuna steaks, 3/4 of an inch thick

3/4 cup breadcrumbs, seasoned with Italian herbs

1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 cup imported Italian basil pesto (it can also be homemade)

Lisa’s Tuna Steaks in Breadcrumbs with Pesto Directions:

Heat olive oil until sizzling in the pan. Coat each tuna steak on either side with breadcrumbs (the breadcrumbs will stick because the tuna steaks are moist- there is no need for an eggwash). Place the tuna steaks in olive oil for 3-4 minutes on each side. Plate. Place 1 tablespoon of the basil pesto on top of each Tuna steak. Serve immediately.
