When I hear good things about a specific food I need to try it, even if I have to put aside my vegetarian tendencies and break my food rules. My last cookery transgression is this recipe I made mixing a few ingredients with tuna steaks I bought at the Waitrose fresh seafood counter.
Tuna belongs to the group of oily blue fish, it is rich in protein, amino acids and minerals: iron, selenium and phosphorus. What makes it an extremely healthy fish? Its fat.
Its fat content accounts for many nutritional virtues essentially due to Omega 3 acids. Their main effects are related to the protection of the heart and the circulatory system.
- 2 tuna steaks (about 100 gr each)
- 4-5 medium sized potatoes
- oil, chilli, garlic, coriander, salt
Heat the pan before arranging the steaks in. Brush the tuna with oil and cook both sides until you get a light golden crust. Do not overcook, let the steak interior be tender and pink (a couple of minutes per side is enough, see the pics in the gallery).
Cut the potatoes in tiny slices and season them with salt, oil, chilli, garlic. Put the potatoes in a tray in the oven for 20-30 mins (you may need to add half cup of water not to make them dry). Add the steaks to the potatoes for the last couple of minutes. Serve with fresh coriander.
