Pan-Seared Tuna with Capers

Total time: 15 minutes
     This is best with good sushi-grade tuna that is quickly seared on both sides and cool or just barely warm in the center.  If you get regular tuna you will need to cook it until it is closer to medium - well, ...ask your fish monger (I love that word)...or the guy behind the counter.
