For a healthy dinner recipe (opens in new tab) that’s full of flavour and won’t leave you feeling hungry, try this delicious tuna recipe (opens in new tab) this week and you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
Tuna steak is a really meaty fish so it’s great if you’re feeling really hungry, plus it’s packed with things that are good for you. We all know that tuna is ‘brain food’, but did you know its also great for your heart? This is thanks to the fact that tuna is packed with essential omega-3 fatty acids that help to reduce the omega-3 fatty acids and cholesterol in the arteries and blood vessels.
Tuna is also packed with protein, which is what helps fill you up and provide essential minerals for growth and repair in the body.
Whipping up a delicious marinade is what really gives this dish extra flavour though, as the lovely mix of Asian flavours in the hoisin sauce, soy sauce and sesame oil bring out a delicious sweet flavour and goes really well when served up with a pile of fresh green vegetables.
So if you’re looking for something delicious to barbecue this weekend, try this tuna steak recipe and you’ll have a new favourite.
HOW TO MAKE STICKY HOISIN TUNA
- Combine all the marinade ingredients in a non-metallic bowl and coat the tuna well. Marinate for at least an hour, or up to overnight.
- When ready to serve, remove the tuna from the marinade and shake off the excess. Cook on the barbecue for 3 minutes on each side, which will give you medium-rare. Serve with green vegetables, with soy and toasted sesame seeds scattered over.
- 6tbsp hoisin sauce
- 2tbsp soy sauce
- 2tsp sesame oil
- 2tsp sugar
- 4 sustainably caught tuna steak
