The high oil content of tuna gives it a distinctly robust flavor when properly cooked. That said, if tuna is not properly cooked, it can dry out, ruining what makes it so tasty. Fortunately, it isn't difficult to prepare and cook tasty tuna. Simple preparation, storage and cooking tips can make a huge difference.

Drying
When prepping your tuna avoid washing it. Instead, just pat each side dry with paper towels. Then, you can either store it or cook it.

Storing
If you are not cooking tuna right away, place it on a plate and cover it with cling wrap after drying it on both sides. Then refrigerate it. Tuna should be used with one day of being placed in the refrigerator.

Marinade
Tuna is a strongly flavored fish, so many people like it marinated. Oil-based marinades work best with fish because they help the flavors infuse into the fish. Some ideas for marinades would be salad dressings, because they are oil based, and marinades or dressing that are citrus flavored.

Cooking Time
The right cooking time is key to making a good tuna steak. If your are putting your tuna on the grill or in a pan, cook it 2 minutes on each side. If you are cooking it in your oven, wrap it in oiled tin foil and bake it on 375 degrees F for 10 to 15 minutes.

Prep Cooking Surface
Never cook fresh tuna in a pan or on a grill without first oiling the surface. Brushing the grill with olive oil or adding a small amount of oil to the pan helps prevent sticking an burning.
