The tuna is an amazing muscle toner, as well as an incredible Omega boost... its an amazing protein great for your heart, blood flow and flexibility.
I was lucky enough to have two years coaching and teaching sports dietary requirements with some of The Spanish national athletic team, one recipe using fresh tuna was as follows..My Catalan Tuna fillet's.

Cook through until soft, then add the garlic and chilli stir for a minute or so, now add in the toms, splash in a little cider vinegar and bring to a simmer for around 15 mins.
You will need to give this mix with the ground almonds a good zuzz for 30 sec's in a processor or hand blend it after transferring to a mixing bowl.
Add your seasoning, if its not a pourable texture you may need to add a little water.
Now pre heat your grill, rinse your tuna under cold water, and dry off with kitchen towel.
Brush both sides of the fillet with the oil, cook under the grill for 2-3 mins or until its the texture of tenderness you like.
Place the tuna onto warmed plates, spoon over the Catalan sauce, serve with your cooked French beans and lemon wedges..
