This is my first time cooking a piece of tuna, and really when I bought the tuna chunk , I had no idea what to do with it. In the end , I just pan seared it simply with the spicy teriyaki sauce and lemon thyme. You won't believe it, the lemon thyme really smell like lemon. I love it ! I lightly crushed it and pan seared it together with the piece of tuna steak...lovely ! And do you believe it, I chomp down the lemon thyme like a goat. Read that it is good for health and has some medicinal value to it. Well..the herb is expensive , so better chomp it all down like a goat LOL! So fragrant and great for the tuna fish. I love fresh herbs so it is no problem to me taking in fresh herbs like thymes and dill. I used to grow thymes but they all died on me :(
Fishes like the salmon and tuna , it will be best if it is cooked in simple way . Over flavoring it with spices will mask the natural sweetness of the fish. The more subtle it is , the better, for it will brings out the natural taste of the tuna fish. Now , after cooking it, I realized that tuna is best taken in sashimi way. After cooking it, the meat turned a bit dry...maybe I have overcooked it. Well, the next time, I will prepare tuna in another different way.....as in sashimi :) But overall, it was great though it was a bit dry. I whipped up a simple mango salsa and a simpler radish salad as sides for the Pan Seared Tuna With Spicy Teriyaki And Lemon Thyme ! Delicious !
bought this chunk of forzen tuna from Jusco Ipoh @ RM12
marinade with spicy teriyaki sauce and
a pinch of freshly grounded black pepper
pan seared it with grapeseed oil...healthier than cooking oil
love this radish salad...just drizzle on with olive oil and
salt and mixed herbs
a simple mango salsa with tomato and gherkins and
spring onion...a tsp of olive oil
to be frank, it tasted good though a bit dry .
if only I have the white wine around...then it would be
be nicer if white wine is added to it....waiting for WB
to donate me a bottle of white wine :p
Have a great day,
