Rich and hearty tuna steaks are punched up with a herbaceous and briny caper herb sauce in this simple and delicious meal. Preheating the pan speeds up the process of cooking the underside of the tuna. A final broil to finish ensures even cooking throughout.

Note: This recipe cannot be scheduled in advance, as the initial preheat is essential to cooking the tuna thoroughly.
