  • Tuna Bites
  • 1 pound piece good quality tuna steak
  • 2 TBS grapeseed or olive oil
  • 3 TBS Paul Prudhomme Seafood Magic used above or Blackened Seafood Magic or whichever blackening seasoning you enjoy best
  • Aioli
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 TBS relish
  • Few dashed Worcestershire sauce
  • A squeeze of fresh lemon juice
  • A dash or two of Cayenne pepper


  • Lightly coat your tuna in a bit of oil.
  • Cut the tuna steak into bite sized cubes.
  • Gently pres tuna cubes down into the seasoning mixture and coat all sides with it.
  • Place coated tuna pieces on a plate.
  • Heat 1 1/2 - 2 TBS of  oil in a non-stick griddle or skillet until very hot but not smoking.
  • Place tuna pieces into the pan and cook over high med-heat until each side of the cube is cooked and golden brown/blackened.
  • You need to move quick so the tuna doesn't cook all the way through.  Total cook time should not exceed 2-3 minutes if you still want your tuna pink inside.
  • If you want it rarer, you need to cook it even less.
  • Remove each tuna piece (based on size) as soon as it is done and plate.
  • Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and mix until smooth and creamy.
  • Eat the tuna alone or with some of the sauce...either way, enjoy!
