They say when you really have a passion for something you can talk about it for hours without getting bored. I’ve given it a lot of thought and I’m pretty sure the same school of thought applies to something you could eat for hours on end and still wish you had more stomach room so that you could keep on eating.

Seafood is that thing for me. I grew up in a seafood-loving family so it’s in my blood. We heart fish big time in our house.

I am stoked to have partnered up with the National Fisheries Institute to create an easy, simple, and super tasty fish recipe for you, and shed a little light on the amazingness that is seafood. In 2016, the National Fisheries Institute launched a seafood education initiative called Dish on Fish to help educate Americans about the importance of eating seafood, and to encourage seafood consumption.

You might not know that February is National Heart Month – well it is! The U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGAs) encourages Americans to eat 2-3 servings of seafood each week in order to really reap all of the heart-healthy benefits that seafood has to offer, and I’m here to make it easier for you to do just that!

I’ve already been sharing shrimp and salmon here on Creme de la Crumb for a long time because they’re two of my favorite, and most popular seafoods, and I’m really excited to be adding this delicious tuna recipe to the mix.

My father, who might be the biggest seafood fanatic in my entire (very large) family, went absolutely nuts over these sheet pan tuna steaks. He said they were cooked perfectly and the flavor was “outstanding”. He doesn’t say that about all fish recipes, he has high standards!

What my father didn’t know is how incredibly easy it is to make this recipe. Sheet pan meals are my bread and butter, they make weeknight cooking SO much simpler and take a lot of prep and thought out of planning your weekly menu since there’s an entree and a side dish all cooked together on the sheet pan.

This Sheet Pan Lemon Herb Tuna Steaks and Potatoes recipe is a breeze to whip up and packs maximum flavor into a dish with minimal ingredients in just 30 minutes. Your whole family will love this dinner!

Ingredients

  • 4 3/4-inch thick tuna fillets
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil, divided
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder, divided
  • 1 1/2 pounds baby red potatoes, halved
  • 4 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • additional lemon slices for garnish optional

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Combine 4 tablespoons olive oil, lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, 1/4 teaspoon oregano, 1/4 teaspoon thyme, 1/4 teaspoon basil, and 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder in a large resealable bag along with the tuna fillets. Seal the bag, massage the fillets to rub in the seasonings and distribute all the ingredients. Chill for 15 minutes while you move on to the next step. 

  2. In a large bowl combine potatoes and remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil and toss to coat. Stir together remaining salt, pepper, oregano, thyme, basil, and garlic powder, sprinkle over potatoes and stir to combine. Arrange potatoes on half of a greased sheet pan.  Bake for 15 minutes.

  3. After 15 minutes, place tuna fillets on the empty half of the sheet pan (add lemon slices if desired), sprinkle parmesan cheese over the potatoes, and return to the oven for 6 minutes. Flip the tuna fillets, and cook for another 6 minutes. Serve and enjoy!

Really lovely. Your dad definitely has good taste!


great idea, don’t usually make many fish recipes since they’re usually a pain and pan frying usually leaves a pretty strong smell in the kitchen, this is much better, hadn’t seen a sheet pan fish recipe before, so thank you!

Hi! Our family prefers tuna to be pink in the middle still(basically raw) and seared on the outside. Will this be cooked through in the middle?

    I was wondering this same thing – the pictures look almost seared but I have no idea how baking the fish would do this.


Honestly I didn’t think this has a lot of flavor AND MINE TOOK fAR lONGER TO COOK AND THE POTATOS STILL DIDN’T TAST DONE.

    Hannah- super bummed to hear you didn’t love this meal! Hopefully you can find a different recipe here that you will love! 🙂


Delicious!!


today was my first time cooking tuna steaks, and they turned out fantastic! great and easy recipe! thank you!!!

    This recipe is how I introduced my husband to a tuna steak! So glad that you loved this dish, Mandi! Thanks for stopping by!


This was really amazing, so delicious just as it was written. Full of flavor and goodness. Thank you!

    Hi Kate! I am so excited to hear that you love this recipe! Thanks for your feedback!


Hi! Our family prefers tuna to be pink in the middle still(basically raw) and seared on the outside. Will this be cooked through in the middle?

    Yes, it is written to be cooked throughout. So, you’ll need to modify it a bit towards your liking for sure!


I made this and it was fun and delicious!

    This is one of my favorites! So glad that we both agree 😉


THree questions

upon trying this I experienced that the Olive oil and dry ingredients clung to the plastic bag more than it attached to the tuna. Is is that typical?

I had to guess on the amount of ingredients when preparing just one tuna steak. Do do you have any modified ingredients list For lesser number of tuna steaks?

I might have missed read the amount of time for this recipe I believe I noticed that it said 15 minutes prep time and 15 minutes cook time but in the directions it appears that there is 15 minutes of prep TIM and 27 minutes of cook time. Did I miss read that? also did the prep time include the time for the preheating of the oven?

    Dan- yes, it’s typical for the bag to collect a portion of the oil and dry ingredients! It is accounted for in the original recipe. Sorry I don’t have modified instructions for making one- I haven’t tried that myself yet! Yes, looks like I have calculated the total time wrong.. it does not account for time predating the oven since they are all different!

Made this turner out great
This is a keeper recipe

    Nick- thanks for your feedback. Excited to hear that you loved this recipe!

I tried the recipe ans was amazing, joined with A fresh green salad
And bOiled cassava.

    Super excited to hear that you loved this recipe! Great pairings!

This is crazy good. But I baked it an extra two minUte for the tUna Just to feel safe that it was THOROUGHLY cookeD. Is it french?

    Great job! Excited to hear that you enjoyed this recipe 🙂


Loved this recipe! We use a convection oven and like our tuna a bit rare, so I cut the time from 12 minutes on the tuna to about 8. Otherwise I followed the recipe and it was wonderful

    Great job, Carolyn!! Super excited to hear that this recipe turned out great for you!

I added brussel sprouts. Perfect

    I love adding brussels sprouts when I can! Great thinking!

EasY and delicious weekday recipe yet also works well for entertaining

    Perfectly said, Liz!

I’m making this tonight


Very tasty. I substituted asparagus sprinkled with parmesan for potatoes & cut oil in half, partly because I had only 3 steaks, total 10 oz. Put all in oven at same time & cooked 14-15 min, came out medium rare.

    Fantastic job!! Excited to hear that you enjoyed this recipe so much 🙂

Easy and DELICIOUS!
Substitute cauliflower for the potatoes to make this paleo/keto friendly.

    Thanks for your input, Julia!

Potatoes were good; the tuna was not. It was pretty tasteless and 12 minutes was far too long.

How can I get copies of your receipes. Do you have a book. ann

    Hi Ann! I do not have a cookbook- but maybe in the future! As far as that goes.. you can print whichever recipe you are looking for with the easy to use print button on each recipe page! 🙂


Wonderful recipe, my family loved it! I parboiled my potatoes 10 min prior to putting in oven.

    Awesome job, Meredith! Glad to hear that you had a good turnout with this recipe.

I made this a few nights ago and it was good. I loved how easy and healthy it was (no super high sodium sauces to worry about feeding my toddler).

I also tossed some Brussels sprouts in with the fries for our vegetable.

Thank you for the recipe!

    Sounds like you did a great job!! Thanks, Marissa!


If you like your tuna the way it should be eaten (seared), you will not like this recipe. It was so dry that it tasted like dry lemon chicken. The potatoes need more time to cook as well. We made this recipe as written even though deep down we knew this wasn’t how we would make it.
