TUNA Me UP!

Ooooh...

This is definitely my fave meal of the week!

Actually...
The both of ours :)

I've never made Pan Seared Tuna before, so...

I decided to give it a shot after SuperFit hinted he was craving some of that goodness!

To his lovely surprise...

His wish came true!

While he was out riding the other day and after I finished my Back and Shoulders Workout...

I put on my apron and got to cooking! (I don't actually have an apron!)

**FYI: Before he left for his ride, he told me how long to sear each side of the Tuna Steaks. SuperFit doesn't cook lol**

Not going to lie though...

I took out my timer to make sure I got the timing just right! (No joke!)

After looking at a number of ways to season my Steaks...

I decided to create my own 'thang' using some of the ingredients I came across in my search. (There are so many ways you can add flavour to this Protein!)

I seasoned two Tuna Steaks two different ways.

His.

Recipe:
  1. 1 T Sesame Oil
  2. 1 T Low Sodium Soya Sauce
  3. 1 tsp. Minced Ginger
  4. Pepper to taste
  5. Sesame Seeds (enough to cover all sides)
Coat and refrigerate for a good hour before cooking! (For best flavorFUl results, that is!)

Hers.

For mine...

I simply sprinkled on some Montreal Steak Spice and sprayed a touch of Olive Oil on both sides of the Steaks (in order for the Sesame Seeds to stick), and added some...

WasAaaaaBe! (On the side, for good measure!)

BAMbu
I love that through your nostrils heat ;)

Now...

I realize searing (or flash searing) sounds complicated (at least it did to me!) but...

It's pretty simple.

You cook both sides anywhere between 60-90 seconds, and...

The middle stays, as Chef Ramsay would say....

RAaaaaW!

Make sure your pan is nice and hot.
Flash Sear over Medium/High Heat.
(That's Olive Oil)

Let's just say...

It took me no time to cook!

SuperFit's sesame seeds toasted a little quicker than mine ;)

As for our sides...

I made Rice and Roasted Broccoli to go with the Sesame Crusted Tuna Steaks...

Recipe for the greens:

  • A touch of Olive to coat pan
  • Pepper

Place the Broccoli in the oven at 375F for about 25 minutes. (It took 25 minutes in my oven!)

Sometimes...
My tummy likes Broccoli.
Sometimes...
Not so much.
His.
I decided to have both steaks.
Not ;)
Hers.
My tummy didn't mind Broccoli on this particular day...
FUew!

 So was it good?


I think so!

He finished his plate and ate what was left on mine!
He can't get enough of my FU face ;)

There's no denying...

I'll be making this dish again!

Happy Friday everyone! :)

  3. Loving all the roasted broccoli you keep enjoying. Jason would totally have gone with 2 sides as well. Glad it turned out too. It's always fun when you try something new and it's a success.
