MARINATED TUNA STEAK
Fit Food for those who demand great tastes and be in fantastic shape.
Tuna is a popular salt-water fish that's pink in color due its high content of myoglobin, an oxygen- binding molecule in muscle. This allows tuna to swim very fast (some tuna have been clocked at over 48 mph). While eating this recipe probably won't make you any faster, you’ll definitely enjoy the taste. Paired with Sesame Broccoli and Feta (anytime) or Soy Ginger Lentils with Baby Bok Choy (post-workout), this is a meal you'll sprint to.
Prep time: 2 mins. Marinating time: 4 Hrs. Cook time: 6 mins
1 tbsp Shallots (fine diced)
1 tbsp Fresh Basil (finely chopped)
2 pinch Salt
1 pinch Chilli Powder
1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 tsp Lemon Juice
6 oz Albacore or yellowfin tuna steak (170g)
Olive Oil cooking spray
Mix the shallots, basil, salt, chili powder, olive oil and lemon juice in a small bowl and then coat the tuna and let marinate for 4 hours in the fridge. Turn every hour. Preheat a non-stick frying pan on medium heat. Lightly coat with spray and place tuna into the pan. Cook and turn until lightly browned on all sides. Tuna should still be rare in the middle. Serves 2.
For a quicker meal prep time, you can skip the marinating period and fry this up immediately.
