Sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

In a medium sized mixing bowl combine olives, garlic, tomatoes, capers, herbs, lemon juice, olive oil and feta cheese. Lightly stir ingredients to combine. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.

Pre heat a medium sized sauté pan over medium high heat. Season both sides of the tuna steaks lightly with salt and pepper. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the pre heated sauté pan.
