Step 12

The key with cooking the tuna is an unbelievably hot pan. Leave it on to get heat for a good 2 minutes. All we want to do is sear the tuna not actually cook it through.

Step 13

This process will literally take about 20 seconds on each side. No longer, there's nothing worse than dry overcooked tuna.

Whip it out of the pan immediately and lash it into the bun and get it to the table quickly.

How good does that look? You could even upgrade it a bit more by throwing the tuna on the BBQ in the summer. The perfect treat day dish that isn't even that bad for you. Get stuck in!!
