Broiling tuna steak in the toaster oven

Tuna steak has become more popular in recent years, shortly after sushi became a normal thing to eat in North America. Usually, tuna steak is seared on the outside and left raw in the middle. Another way to prepare tuna steak is in the toaster oven. There's less clean-up and no need to watch a frying pan. All you need to do is line a baking try with aluminum foil or parchment paper, season your tuna steak with olive oil, salt, and your favorite spices. Put the baking rack on the highest level in your toaster oven and set it to the broil function. Because toaster ovens vary in how hot they get, try a lower temperature (e.g. 350 F) the first time you do this and flip it after 5 minutes. Broil on the second side for 5 minutes. If the fish is too raw, pop it back in for another couple of minutes.
