Sometimes I'll squeeze a bit of lemon juice on it once I plate it, sometimes not.
I am with you CG. I will take a small piece of fresh tuna, cook it to well done with sautéing and pour a small amount of olive oil over it. Let it marinate overnight. By then the piece has absorbed most of the oil. I pour off the excess. I then make an awesome tuna salad with diced celery, finely diced Vidalia Onion and seasonings. I have a small FP that cuts things like celery and onions so small they are almost liquefied. I have difficulty with raw vegetables. So in order to eat them, they have to be really finely diced. And for those that hate onions, or celery, they don't even know they are eating them.
They can keep their raw tuna just seared on the outside. Because of the high mercury in tuna, I don't eat it too often. And I don't buy the albacore steak ever. They have the highest mercury levels.
