2 tuna steaks, about 1-inch thick
1 cup basil leaves, finely chopped
¼ cup olive oil
3 tbsp butter
1 cup cauliflower, finely chopped
3 tbsp mozzarella, shredded
2 garlic cloves

1 tsp sea salt


  1. Plug in the instant pot and set the steam basket. Pour in one cup of water and add tuna steaks in the basket.
  2. Season with salt and seal the lid. Set the steam release handle to the ‘’Sealing’’ position and press the ‘’Manual’’ button. Cook for 7 minutes on high pressure.
  3. When done, perform a quick release and open the lid. Using oven mitts, gently remove the steam basket and set aside.

  8. Bake for 15 minutes at 400 degrees or until lightly brown and crispy.
  9. Serve immediately.
