Tuna Steak with Caper Relish recipe

tuna steak One of my favorite things about fish is how quick it is to make. With typical constraints of 30 minutes or less to cook dinner, I love how easy it is to throw fish in a pan, add a few seasonings and enjoy the tasty and vitamin-rich food. Tuna steak is one of my favorites, since it has that meaty quality, to make it a more substantial meal. When selecting your tuna steaks, look for brightly colored red or pink tuna – a sign of freshness. Avoid dull or brown colored tuna, not as fresh. This recipe mixes the typical garlic/ginger/lemon combination with capers, for a burst of saltiness. And it takes less than 10 minutes!

Serves 2

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium size tuna steaks
  • 1 tsp ground ginger (or ginger paste)
  • 1-2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbsp capers
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp coarse salt
  • 1 tsp olive oil

Directions

1. Prepare your marinade: mix grated ginger (or ginger paste), 1-2 cloves of garlic pressed (or garlic paste), paprika, salt and capers. Mash well, add a few squeezes of lemon juice.

2. Heat up your pan. The pan has to be hot when you place the fish on, so you get a nice sear right away.

3. Add a bit of olive oil on the pan. This is an optional step, since tuna is oily enough. Place tuna steaks on the skillet.

4. Let the tuna sear for just a minute and once you see color is starting to fade, quickly turn over and sear on the other side just a bit. Do not overcook fish.

4. Place the fish on the plate and finish off with a drizzle of lemon juice and a few capers for decoration. Fish will cook a little more as it’s resting, which is why it’s important to get it off the pan quickly enough.

5. Enjoy with a side of rice or couscous or slice it to go on top of a fresh salad.
