Parmesan and Herb Crusted Albacore
albacore tuna steaks
Panko bread crumbs
salt and pepper
Olive oil for frying
whipped (egg wash) flour
In a shallow dish, mix together bread crumbs, nuts, basil and salt and pepper to taste. Season steaks with salt and pepper.
Place egg wash in another shallow container, and about 1 cup of flour in a third shallow container.
Coat fish steaks in flour, then dip in egg wash. Finally, coat well in the macadamia- bread crumb mixture.
On medium-high heat, heat enough oil to coat pan about 1/4-inch high for frying. When hot, sear steaks in hot oil on both sides until light golden brown.
Place steaks in baking pan and finish off in a 425 F oven for about 5 minutes. Do not over cook, or fish will be tough. Serve with fresh lemon and capers.
Note: Tuna continues to cook even when removed from heat, so when center is just a bit translucent, it can be removed and allowed to finish cooking on the serving plate.
