Seared Tuna

Dip 1 inch tuna steak in clarified butter and generously sprinkle with SIS on both sides.  Cook for 1 minute on each side in HOT black skillet.  Tuna will be rare.  Serve immediately.

"I just had to let you know that I think your seasoning is fabulous. I put it in every vegetable and oh my gosh you are right about enhancing the taste of a grilled steak. I have to tell you that my husband is a big fan of steak sauce and I asked him to try the steak without it. He ate the entire steak and said it was too good to mess  up with sauce. It truly has enhanced the taste of everything I have tried.  I think you have a winner.

"We have been purchasing and enjoying your salt creations for several months now, and we just wanted you to know that it is absolutely the best seasoning salt ever! Now that BBQ season is here, my husband just informed me that we can never be without it. So, thank you for creating such a delicious product for just about everything I cook, but especially a good, old steak."
