Reduce heat to medium and add butter pieces, stirring. When butter is half melted, remove saucepan from heat and continue stirring until thoroughly incorporated. In a saute pan heat oil over high heat. Season tuna steaks with salt, pepper and Bayou Blast and sear until well-browned, about 2 minutes per side, turning once. Pour tomato sauce mixture over tuna steaks and bring to a gentle simmer. Continue cooking until tuna is medium-rare, about 5 minutes more. To serve, transfer tuna to 2 heated plates, spoon some sauce over and around steaks and garnish with basil chiffonade. This recipe yields 2 servings.
