|Wok-Seared Tuna with Pineapple Sambal|
To make the sambal, combine pineapple, chile peppers, vinegar, garlic, brown sugar, and soy sauce in a wok or saucepan.
Cook over medium heat for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Drain the mixture and discard the liquid. Transfer the sambal
to a serving bowl. Serve at once or refrigerate until ready to use. To prepare the fish, press the peppercorns into the tuna
steaks. Squeeze the lemon over the steaks. Pour the oil into the wok and heat until it is barely smoking. Place the tuna steaks in
the wok and cook for 5 to 7 minutes, then turn. Continue cooking until the tuna is cooked in the center. Transfer the fish to
warm plates. Spoon some sambal over the steaks and pass the remainder at the table.
