Restaurant quality food cooked in your own kitchen!
All the best restaurants have ahi tuna on the menu. You’ve probably never thought about making it at home, but that’s about to change! Take that intimidation to the side of the road and try our delicious Fried Tuna with Wasabi Cream.
This chic looking dish is so easy To run. The tuna’s hearty, steak-like texture has a moist and tender center that rivals the best cuts of beef. The deliciously spicy zing of the wasabi cream takes this dish to a whole new level!
Choosing the right tuna
The quality of the fish you choose is incredibly important to this recipe. We recommend using fresh yellow fin steaks, which are classified as sushi. Yellow fins are leaner than bluefin tuna and have a lighter, less fishy taste. Yellow fins have a lower fat content and a higher protein content compared to salmon. The nutrients in this fish also aid in low blood pressure and weight loss!
Super simple seared tuna
One of the things I like most about yellow fin tuna is its simplicity. Unlike other proteins, sushi-grade yellowfin tuna is safe to eat, even when completely raw. That said, you don’t have to worry about undercooking. It turns out perfect every time!
For this recipe, we first marinate the steaks in ponzu, a Japanese citrus-based sauce that has a sweet and salty taste. Once the steaks have marinated for a few minutes, fry the tuna until it has a light crust on the outside. The inside will still be pink and tender, just like a rare steak.
Dairy-free wasabi cream with a kick
Have you ever had wasabi cream? If not, think of horseradish, but spicier! Many wasabi cream recipes are made with sour cream, but we opted for coconut cream instead to keep this recipe dairy-free. This ingredient helps balance the kick from the wasabi paste and zing of the ginger, so you get the perfect amount of heat.
So many reasons to add this dish to the menu
You will have a hard time finding a meal that is healthier than this! Each serving of our seared tuna with wasabi cream contains only 298 calories. There are 40 grams of protein and only 2 carbohydrates per steak. In addition to being dairy-free, this recipe is diabetic-friendly too.
This recipe is healthy, absurdly easy to make, and full of great flavors that you’ll want to enjoy again and again. You can thank us later!
