1.  In a small bowl, mix the salt and spices together. Rub onto tuna and then coat the fish on both sides with olive oil.

2.  Fit the grill with the griddle plates and preheat both plates to 450°F, then set both plates
to SEAR.

3.  Place the tuna on the lower griddle plate. Close the unit and using the cover height adjuster, adjust the upper plate so it is just resting on the top of the fish. Grill for 2 minutes on SEAR for rare tuna, or add an additional minute at 450°F for medium-rare/medium. 

4.  Allow steaks to rest for a few minutes before serving.
