Tuna Steaks with Garlic-Herb Cream Sauce

Tuna steaks are dressed in a dreamy creamy garlic and herb sauce. I served mine on wilted spinach.

Tuna Steaks with Garlic-Herb Cream Sauce


  • 4 tuna steaks, about 6 oz. each
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp. chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley


  1. Preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Brush the tuna steaks with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  3. Place the tuna steaks in the skillet and sear for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until browned and cooked to your desired doneness. Remove the tuna steaks from the skillet and set aside on a plate.
  4. In the same skillet, reduce the heat to medium-low and add the remaining tablespoon of olive oil and the butter. Once the butter has melted, add the minced garlic and sauté for 1-2 minutes, or until fragrant.
  5. Add the heavy cream to the skillet and stir well to combine with the garlic-butter mixture. Bring the sauce to a simmer and let it cook for 2-3 minutes, or until it has thickened slightly.
  6. Stir in the chopped thyme and parsley, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Spoon the garlic-herb cream sauce over the tuna steaks and serve immediately.

Enjoy your delicious tuna steaks with garlic-herb cream sauce!
