Tuna Steak with Five Bean Salad

ImageImage

Cutting through tuna, when it’s still rare in the middle is like heaven, never mind when you actually put it in your month. Again, I used one cal spray to griddle the tuna. I coated it in a bit of salt, some pepper, sesame seeds, soy sauce and rice vinegar.

The salad also had carrots, red onion and spring onion (all julienne) in it. I drizzled a little more rice vinegar over the beans to liften them up a little. APPARENTLY, there are a few more carbs than I thought in beans but they don’t compare to pasta/potato/bread/rice so in that sense, we’re all good. This was a great meal, but tuna steaks are a tad expensive for us students so it will probably be a while until I have this meal again.

Recipe: (serves 2):

  1. 2 tuna steaks
  2. 1 carrot, peeled and cut into thin strips
  3. tinned 5 bean salad (I used Napolina)
  4. 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  5. 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  6. 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  7. half a red onion, thinly sliced

Coat the tuna in 1 tablespoon of the rice vinegar, the soy sauce, sesame seeds and salt and pepper. Add to a hot griddle pan that has been sprayed with 3-4 sprays of FryLight. Griddle the tuna for approximately 2 minutes on each side, if you prefer it more well done, do it for longer. Open the five bean salad, drain them if they have a brine, if not add straight to a bowl and over in the remaining rice vinegar. Add the carrots and onion to the five bean salad. A quick, easy and delicious meal!
