Craving some steaks but wanting to stay on the lighter side?
To maintain good weight management and health you should try to limit red meat to just twice a week. I love a juicy steak, but do make sure to indulge in moderation and not back to back days. When I’m craving a rare steak a great alternative is to go for a thick, seared fish instead! These tuna steaks are marinated in a miso-soy cilantro glaze and is a pleasure of flavor to the very last bite.
First mix the miso paste with some soy sauce and rice vinegar. I added in the minced garlic and diced onions, along with the chopped fresh cilantro. If the sauce is too thick you can always add a few teaspoons of water until it reaches the consistency you are going for. Red pepper flakes are optional if you like a little heat to your food. Spread some of the sauce over the tuna steaks and save the rest for the pasta (if that is how you choose to serve yours).
I boiled some soba (or buckwheat) noodles and mixed in the rest of the sauce to serve with the fish. It paired perfectly!
Sear the tuna for about two minutes per side, depending on how rare you like it. I chose to cook mine on a cast iron skillet. Once ready serve with the soba noodles. I added some warm edamame to mine just to get a little veggie in the meal!
The particular cast iron that I prefer to use for this type of dish is this one!
