4 (1-inch-thick) fresh tuna steaks (about 4 pounds)
Olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

To grill the tuna, get a charcoal or stove-top cast-iron grill very hot. Brush the fish with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill each side for only 2-2½ minutes. The center should be raw, like sushi, or the tuna will be tough and dry. Allow to rest for 5-10 minutes and serve.
