Prepare the steak: heat a heavy iron pan. Rub a few drops of olive oil on each of the tuna steaks and season with salt and pepper. Roast on the heated pan for 2 minutes on each side. Make sure the center stays pink. Roast the asparagus sprigs at the same time you roast the fish. Pour sauce on the plate and place fish and asparagus. Serve with a side dish of potato puree or a baked potato.
