Servings

4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Four 4-ounce white tuna (escolar) steaks
  • Fine sea salt and freshly ground white pepper

The Red Wine Béarnaise

  • 1/2 cup dry red wine
  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon black peppercorns
  • 1 teaspoon minced shallot
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Fine sea salt and freshly ground white pepper

The Garnish

  • Fennel Fronds
  • 1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper

Directions

For the red wine béarnaise, combine the wine, vinegar, peppercorns, shallot, tarragon, and thyme in a saucepan, bring to a boil, and reduce the liquid to 2 tablespoons.

Add the brown butter sauce to the reduced wine. Then gradually whisk in the butter. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a small saucepan and season with salt and white pepper. Set aside.

For the tuna, heat the oil to 160 degrees F in a large sauté pan over very low heat.

Season the tuna on both sides with salt and white pepper, place it in the pan, and cook for 5 to 6 minutes, turning once, until medium-rare to medium.
Test for doneness by inserting a metal skewer into the center of the fish; when left in for 5 seconds, it should feel just warm when touched to your lip. Transfer the fish to a paper-towel-lined plate and allow it to rest for a few minutes before slicing.

While the tuna is cooking. Gently warm the red wine béarnaise.

To serve, slice the tuna into 1/4-inch-thick slices and arrange down the center of each plate. Sprinkle a little of the garnish over the center of the slices of tuna.

Spoon the warm red wine béarnaise around the plates, and serve immediately.

Enjoy Everyone!
