Seared Tuna Steaks
Servings: 1


1 tuna steak
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste


On a cutting board, brush the tuna steak with olive oil, then season with salt and pepper on all sides.
Heat a pan or ridged cast iron skillet over high heat. Once the pan is hot, add the tuna steak.
Cook for 2½ minutes, without moving. Flip over and cook for an additional 2½ minutes, or until the sides of the tuna are opaque.
Rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing.

Lemon Poached Salmon
Servings: 1


1 leek, white and light green parts thinly sliced
Juice of 1 lemon
2 teaspoons salt
1 bunch dill, roughly chopped
1 8 ounce salmon filet


Add the leek, lemon juice, salt, dill, and salmon to a pot of water, making sure that the salmon is completely submerged.
Bring the water to a simmer at 160˚F (70˚C).
Cook for 12 minutes, or until the salmon becomes opaque.
Remove the salmon from the liquid with a slotted spoon.

Pan Fried Sole
Servings: 1


1 sole filet
Salt, to taste

½ cup flour
2 tablespoons butter
3 lemon slices


On a cutting board, season the sole filet with salt and pepper.
Dip the sole in a shallow dish filled with flour, shaking off any excess.
Heat butter in a pan over high heat until melted. Once the butter begins to brown, add the sole and lemon slices.
Cook for 1½ minutes, or until the edges of the sole start to curl and release from the pan. Gently flip the sole, and cook for an additional 1½ minutes.

1½ cups flour
Salt, to taste

  1. In India, meat is always well cooked with a whole bunch of spices and condiments. I think eating rare is something which you have to develop the taste for. Most of the meat recipes that I see here are raw according to Indian standards.

  2. I usually work till late hours and come back home tired. I look forward to cook something quick, easy and delicious. i never looked at fish from this point of view as to how amazingly easy and how rewarding it could be to actually cook fish with these techniques. I think I'll be paying the grocery store a visit, get some fish and try it tonight. This could maybe act as a therapy to all the stress gathered on your nerves throughout the day. When you prep it, when you cook it, when you finally bite into it, you're gonna lose yourself perhaps to a world of imagination where you imagine yourself trying out different therapy methods related to cooking fish. Maybe I'll do a YouTube video on this for my channel!

  3. 4:09 Aight' I'll add some kidney beans to that seasoning, be cooking it at 70°C :3
    Sam'o'Nella Fans and Food chemists will get the morbid joke.

  4. Can you follow the recipe of fried eggs, but instead of frying them, can you sear them, poach they or fry pan them?

  5. I've always been terrified of eating/swallowing a fish bone, but i absolutely loveee fish like salmon and tuna and tilapia. so IM CONFLICTED 🙁

  6. Someone in my family baked fish and when I was watching him putting the fish out of the oven there was a ton of grease and my eyes were hurting. It could happen one time

  7. Hello I have a question, I am a 12 year old and want to make the fried fish but it has beer is there any alternatives for the beer
    Could I use water instead
