Bluefin Tuna Steak with Salsa Verde

Bluefin Tuna Steak with Salad and Salsa Verde

Del Giorno’s Chef, Kris Bunder, says that Bluefin Tuna is best served rare to ensure it remains tender and does not taste dry. The steak should be raw in the middle and at a cool temperature, while the outer is cooked and warm.
