kiwiscrapper1, sorry I can't help you from personal experience - I have not had access to or need to cook raw tuna so I suggest that you have a look at:-

Tuna, as in a fillet, steak, does not need cooking for long, just salt and pepper in it, then a quick flash in the pan , to heat it.
Tuna is served rare so to speak, that is only just cooked, should just be pink in the middle, any more than this , and it will be tough and not nice.
I would serve it with a salad or vegies.

Thankyou, I googled it and Jamie Oliver had a video showing how to cook, although we had a different type of tuna, it wasn't the dark it was quite light but made a rub, quick pan fry, sprinkled with lemon and was delish, my son caught it and gave us lots so have to freeze some.

Thanks also 245sam, just read the link and will try next time some of their idea, if I don't make my own mayonnaise I always have 'real food' in the fridge, also Jamie served with a tomato salad so will also try this.
